FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) — A 20-year-old woman faces felony charges in an attack on a waitress police say was pummeled after bringing the wrong food order at a southwestern Illinois restaurant.

Ania Wilkes of Ferguson, Mo., is charged with aggravated battery and mob action.

Authorities in St. Clair County say the Red Lobster in Fairview Heights was busy Dec. 30 when another server took the order from Wilkes and her companions.

Investigators say the waitress brought them the wrong order and that's when one woman threw a drink in the waitress' face before all four at the table punched and pushed the waitress.

The waitress suffered cuts to her nose and forehead and a swollen eye.

Wilkes doesn't have a listed home telephone number, and court records don't show whether she has an attorney.
