Customers allegedly assault, try to rob Wendy’s staff in Toledo over no cheese on chicken sandwich
TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Two people were arrested after police say they assaulted and tried to rob the employees at a Toledo Wendy’s restaurant after cheese was left off the chicken sandwich they ordered.
Court documents show Dominique Ezell and Jalinia Stuart are facing robbery charges after they allegedly tried to take an employee’s phone during the altercation.
According to Toledo Police records, it happened at the Wendy’s in the 1800 block of Laskey Road near Miracle Mile on Wednesday afternoon. Employees called 911 to report a disorder at the location. They told officers that a disgruntled drive-thru customer, “who did not receive cheese on her crispy chicken sandwich,” entered the restaurant and angrily confronted the employees.
“Without provocation she grabbed two Frosty’s from the counter and threw them at the employees and knocked/threw several items from the register area,” the incident report reads. “Including the cookie display which hit and injured a pregnant female employee.”
Police say Stuart was carrying a minor child at the time. Shortly after, Ezell came in and began throwing items as well, damaging a sales register. Employees were able to remove the two suspects and were taking photos of them and the vehicle when Stuart allegedly grabbed an employee’s hair and pulled her to the ground in order to take the phone.
The phone was retrieved by another employee before the two suspects drove off, but not before Ezell “returned the chicken sandwich w/o cheese by throwing it into the restaurant.”
The TPD report said the incident did result in minor injuries.
