BEAR, Del. (CBS) – A Delaware man has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a Wawa employee after she told him his order couldn’t be made the way he wanted.
The incident happened around 2:30 a.m. on Feb. 19th at the Wawa in Beaverbrook Plaza.
Police say the male suspect, identified as Terron A. Reed, 36, entered the convenience store and ordered food from the deli.
When Reed was told his order couldn’t be made the way he’d requested, he became disorderly and threw a coffee display stand at the 23-year-old female employee. Reed then allegedly went behind the counter and began strangling the woman before throwing her to the ground and threatening to shoot several other employees.
The suspect fled the parking lot in a gray SUV but was stopped by officers on patrol in the area.
Reed was arrested and charged with Strangulation, two counts of Disorderly Conduct, two counts of Terroristic Threatening, Driving under the Influence of Alcohol, and several traffic offenses.
The female employee was not injured.
