Police say a Philadelphia fast-food worker threw hot oil at customers during an argument at the drive-thru window.

Police allege the employee threw the cooking oil through the window during a dispute with three women over an order at about 3 a.m. Saturday at a Checkers restaurant.

A 20-year-old woman burned on her left arm and left leg was taken to a hospital in stable condition. Police say another 20-year-old woman and a 26-year-old woman were burned on their arms, legs and head but declined treatment.

28-year-old Latifah Linder was charged with aggravated and simple assault, reckless endangering and related offenses. Checkers says it is cooperating with police.
