Two employees of at a north end fast food restaurant were assaulted and one received superficial knife wounds after an irate customer stole some items and was escorted from the eatery on Thursday.
The incident happened shortly before 7:30 p.m. when a 19 year old man walked into the restaurant, which was not identified by police, and stole food products.
He left, then came back a few minutes later and started to yell and scream, so he was escorted from the business and assaulted a 25 year old female employee in the process.
According to police, shortly after being kicked out, the suspect tried crawling back into the restaurant through the drive through window. An 18 year old male employee pushed the suspect out, but suffered superficial cuts on his arms when the suspect pulled a knife. The employee was treated by paramedics.
Police found the irate man nearby and after a short scuffle, managed to get him into custody and found a small black folding knife on his person.
The accused was held in custody to appear in a bail hearing Friday afternoon.
Police are recommending charges including counts of assault, one count of assault with a weapon and one count of theft under $5,000.
The suspect was also under various conditions from a previous charge before the courts and is now also facing four counts of breach of recognizance.
