SOUNDVIEW, Bronx (WABC) -- Police want to find the people behind a violent brawl at a Popeyes restaurant in the Bronx.

The incident happened Saturday around 10:30 p.m. at the store on Bruckner Boulevard.

The woman later returned to the restaurant to pick up her food.

The suspects left in a black four-door sedan.
