The George Webb location at 2028 W. Mitchell St. in Milwaukee will add increased security after a man punched an employee behind the counter last month. 

The restaurant originally said it would no longer keep the location open 24 hours a day, but later revised their plan to instead increase security in and around the restaurant. 

They are also reviewing security protocols for all 24-hour locations and will make changes where they see necessary. 

The restaurant chain will partner with "Operation Impact" to provide the increased security. 

Back on June 29 just after 1 a.m., a man walked behind the counter at the Mitchell Street location and punched a worker, reportedly over bad service. 

The woman punched suffered a concussion . Another employee who reportedly is a concealed carry permit holder pulled a gun on the attacker and scared him off.
