Police hunt man who spat on teenage girl working at Essendon drive thru


Police are hunting a man who spat on a teenage girl working at a fast food restaurant in Essendon.

Investigators have been told the man entered the drive thru on Keilor Road, near McCracken Street, around 5pm on January 13 and placed an order.
