(WMC-TV) – A Memphis family will never forget the beat down they received at a Frayser Burger King last year. They claim all they wanted was an ice cream cone.

Diane Dunlap said her daughter Dynesha Clayborne was there to study.

"It's a day I will never forget," said Clayborne. "When I was on the ground they were beating me they were punching me in the face, hitting me with weapons."

Dunlap decided to buy an ice cream cone as her daughter studied. She said when she ordered it the Burger King employee coughed into her hands and then started making the ice cream cone.

Dunlap said she asked the employee to wash her hands and make another cone. She was being careful because her daughter had just recovered from strep throat.

The employee became irate, according to Dunlap.

"We need to get our ‘so and so's' out of Burger King before they do this and they do that," said Dunlap recalling the incident.

Dunlap told her daughter they were leaving.

As seen in the surveillance video, the mother and daughter start packing up their belongings. Then, as recorded in the video, employees start to attack them.

"I see them coming around the counter running up to me," said Clayborne.

In the video, Clayborne ends up alone in a corner getting pummeled. Hit at times with a metal advertising frame that one of the employees took off a table.

"When I got up, I had bruises on my face and scratches and my hair pulled out," said Clayborne.

Dunlap was also injured. They said they never got a response from Burger King.

"I won't go to Burger King for anything," said Dunlap.

Action News 5 was unable to contact anyone from Burger King Corporate in Miami for a comment. No one from the Frayser Burger King would comment.

The police took a report after the beat down, but no one was arrested.

Diane Dunlap and her then 17-year-old daughter Dynesha Clayborne are suing for millions. Click here to read more about the lawsuit.
