Group Of Thugs Attack, Threaten To Shoot McDonald’s Manager – But They Chose The Wrong Victim
McDonald’s Manager Stabs Attacker
Des Moines, WA – A McDonald’s manager stabbed a suspect after being repeatedly assaulted on Sunday, September 17.
The incident occurred about 2:30 PM at the McDonald’s located in the 22600 block of Pacific Highway South, according to CBS 6 Albany.
The 20-year-old manager, who was not identified, asked a group of five people loitering near the bathrooms to leave. Des Moines Police Commander Doug Jenkins said that the group refused to leave, and a confrontation occurred.
One of the people in the group threatened to ‘assault and shoot the manager.’ That same suspect then attacked the manager; he spit on him, threw his milkshake at him, and punched him in the face.
It was at that point that the manager pulled a pocketknife and stabbed the suspect once in the chest.
The suspect, age 28, was transported Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
Commander Jenkins said that the manager received minor injuries. The suspects’ names were not released.
The investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made.
In a statement, local McDonald’s management said “The safety of our customers and our people is of the upmost [sic] importance. This is now a police matter and we ask that all questions are differed to local law enforcement.”
No arrests have been made so far. When the investigation is completed, it will be turned over to the King County Prosecutor’s Office to make a charging decision.
This latest event comes shortly after Taco Bell employees took down armed robbers in Cleveland.
De’Carlo Jackson entered the Taco Bell at 2:45 AM Sept. 6 with another armed accomplice and demanded at gunpoint that the employees get on the ground. Three employees got on the ground and the two robbers walked up to the cash register, according to Cleveland.com.
Then three other Taco Bell employees pulled out their own guns and fired several shots at the two armed robbers. Jackson was killed while the other robber ran out of the restaurant.
