Police on the Lookout for Subjects in Brutal Burger King Incident (Video)

Pembroke Pines Police are asking for the public's help in identifying two suspects involved in a brutal incident that occurred last Sunday evening at the Burger King at 8913 Taft Street in Hollywood.

According to police, a witness observed a man follow a female victim into the ladies bathroom. The witness overheard a "commotion" and entered the bathroom to find the victim on the ground with her head being pushed into the toilet by the suspect.

The witness told the subjects to leave and both began to walk out. Prior to exiting, the suspect "forcefully grabbed the victim by the hair and pulled her out of the restaurant" and was overheard saying, "You're going to die today and I'm going to be the one to do it".

The suspect and victim left in a silver Infinity G35 (2009-2011 model; 4 door;

spoiler in the rear; and a University of Miami sticker in the back window), driven by a second suspect. The car was seen driving southbound on Douglas Road.

Police are looking for a black male in his 20's; around 6 feet tall with a slim build and black hair, wearing a white tank top and a white or Hispanic male with dark, curly hair. The victim is described as a black female in her 20's, about 5'5" - 5'7" tall and 140-145 pounds with shoulder length black hair. She was last seen wearing a purple shirt.

Police have released the following video:
