Photo: LATINO BLOTTER: Fast Food Worker Stabs Customer for Complaining About His Order
Most would agree you shouldn’t mess with the people who handle your food, but what happens when the people handling your food go after you? In this case: stitches.
Gabriel Villalba, 28, was working at a Southern California Del Taco fast food establishment when a drive-thru customer complained about his order.
The incident occurred Thursday at around 2 a.m. at a Del Taco restaurant I in Hemet, Calif.
The argument over the order escalated and Villalba reached out the drive-thru window with a knife and stabbed the customer in the abdomen.
The unnamed customer was rushed to a local hospital by a friend in serious condition.
Police arrested Villalba on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. As of Saturday, Villalba was being held on $25,000 bail.
The victim’s injuries were serious, but not fatal.
