    Vicki LaRocca of Schiller Park filed a lawsuit against McDonald's for allegedly burning her daughter with hot chocolate. According to LaRocca, the lid was not secure.

    A suspect has been caught in the apparent random stabbing of a 12-year-old girl at a McDonald's restaurant near Texas A&M University.

    College Station police on Wednesday announced the arrest of 23-year-old John Robert Murphy III of College Station. Tips led to Murphy, who was captured in the Houston area.

    Murphy is charged with injury to a child, with bond set at $150,000. Officer Rhonda Seaton said Murphy will be returned to College Station. She had no details on an attorney for him.

    Seaton said the victim was standing inside the restaurant, near the exit, when she was stabbed Monday night by a departing man.

    Seaton said an adult was with the girl, but not beside her when the child was attacked.

    The girl's name has not been released.
