An argument over a plate led to a physical altercation between customers and a server, which resulted in a baby being punched in the head, police said.
The incident took place Tuesday at the El Matador restaurant in Denton, KDFW reported. Two women sharing a table asked for an extra plate and became upset at how long their request was taking, witnesses told police. One woman at the table knocked a plate of food off the table, then confronted the server, who was taking an order at another table.
The woman hit the server, who fell onto a 9-month-old baby in a highchair, KDFW reported. The collision caused the baby to hit his head on the table, police said. As the server attempted to get up, the woman tried to strike her again but missed and punched the baby in the back of the head.
The baby's mother confronted the woman, who punched the mother in the face, police said. The mother chased the women out of the restaurant. The suspects were gone by the time police arrived, KDFW reported. Police are attempting to identify the suspects.
There were no serious injuries, The Dallas Morning News reported.
