Deandre Lorick of Hawthorne Assaults Raising Cane Manager in Downey


On June 24, 2017, a manager of Raising Cane’s, located at 9265 Firestone Boulevard, was assaulted at the drive-thru window after refusing to serve a car that “cut” in front of other cars in line. One of the occupants of the vehicle threw a Gatorade bottle full of liquid at the manager, striking him in the face. The suspect and other occupants in the vehicle then fled the location, but videotaped the incident and posted it on social media, garnering much attention on local television news and social media.

Detectives investigated this case and identified the suspect as Deandre Lorick, 27-years-old, resident of Hawthorne.

This case was reviewed by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office in Downey and today they filed one misdemeanor charge of 245(a)(1) of the California Penal Code, aggravated assault. The suspect is being ordered to appear in court on August 25, 2017 to face his criminal charge.

Press inquiries may be directed to Lieutenant Alex Irizabal at (562) 904-2369 or Sergeant Leigh Lacy at (562) 904-2340.
