Winston-Salem, North Carolina – An angry customer stabbed a 16-year-old Jimmy John’s employee over a sandwich order.
Demetrius Holeman, 45, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and injury to real property for the damages to the store, WXII reported.
According to police, Holeman was on a ‘do not serve’ list at Jimmy John’s because of past behavior but she entered the store on Tuesday and became violent.
The teen victim suffered non-life threatening injuries, but was badly hurt according to WXII.
A High Point woman is facing charges after, police said, she became aggressive toward a Jimmy Johns employee over her sandwich order. The 16-year-old worker was stabbed, police said.
“The sheer fact that an adult finds it ok to physically assault someone because a sandwich menu, or a sandwich order being wrong, is abhorrent,” said Capt. Patrick O’Toole, of the High Point Police Department. “The fact that you were willing to assault someone, not only physically but with an edged weapon over a sandwich being wrong, I can’t explain how you come to that conclusion.”
Officers responded to 2010 N. Main Street location at 5:50 p.m. Monday.
Demetris Holeman, 45, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and injury to real property for the damages to the store.
“The franchisee is cooperating fully with local law enforcement. Since it is still an active investigation, we defer any further comment to the local police department,” a Jimmy John’s spokesperson said by email Tuesday evening.
