SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU-TV) - To get a sense of just how many people eat at Taco Bell just show up at lunchtime. But the lunch experience for one family "South of the Border" was definitely not family-friendly.
Five-year-old Emma was escorted to the bathroom in the restaurant by her 11-year-old sister and when they pushed open the bathroom door, Robert Schumann, the girls' father, says "they saw two women servicing two men in the restroom."
Melissa Schumann says "my 11-year-old asked me how come two women were coming out of the bathroom and how come two guys were in there and they were making funny noises."
Robert says "11 years-old is not, still not old enough to start learning about such things as that."
Melissa says "as parents we're supposed to protect our children, not put them in harm's way."
The Schumann's are still shaken up and only hope other children won't ever see what their kids saw.
Robert says "I was fuming, I was angry, I was upset, I was concerned."
Melissa says "it's scary because now I don't want to send my children to the bathroom by themselves and my 11-year-old doesn't want to be treated like a child. She wants to feel grown up and I can't do that now."
The Schumann's contacted the managers at Taco Bell and suggested they lock the doors.
Taco Bell Spokesperson, Rob Poetsch, sent a statement that reads: "The safety of our customers is our number one priority, and although this is an isolated incident, we're having self-locking doors installed as a precautionary measure."
