Shocking footage has shown a Dunkin’ Donuts employee getting stabbed by an upset customer allegedly over his doughnut order.
The video shows the 17-year-old worker lashing out at the man, who is holding a blade in his right hand.
She pushes him and says: “Don’t touch me.”
Another woman begs them to stop as the man starts to swing the knife in the worker's direction.
The teenager was found by police lying on the floor with a cut on her left arm in the store in Union City, Georgia, on Saturday night (December 5).
An arrest report obtained by US outlet WAGA-TV said the man had driven up to the drive-thru before the incident and then returned to the restaurant minutes later to find the employee.
According to Union City Police, a customer was upset the store was out of a certain type of doughnut.
Police are now hunting the man, said Union City Police Department’s Jerome Turner.
"We want to identify who the subject is,” he said. “We just don't want him showing up at another Dunkin' Donuts or any other business or anywhere in public and having the temper where he can make this kind of an assault.”
He also urged staff not to engage in physical disputes with customers.
"We deal with them every day,” the officer continued. “Allow us to come and address the customer and utilize our training and allow us to deescalate the situation so that it doesn't happen like it did here.
Anyone who may have any information can email Officer Turner at email@example.com or call 770-964-1333. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
