Domino's Driver Stabs Customer After Argument Over Late Pizza Delivery: Cops
Michael Charles Parker, 31, allegedly delivered the pizza an hour-and-a-half late, police said.
A Domino's delivery driver stabbed a customer following a dispute over how long it took for the pizza to arrive, according to police.
Michael Charles Parker, 31, arrived at the customer's home in Covina, California around 11:30 p.m., an hour and a half later than expected, according to a police press release.
Parker stabbed the 20-year-old customer, according to police. The unidentified man suffered cuts to his neck, hands and wrists but his injuries were not life-threatening, police said. He was taken to a nearby trauma center.
Parker fled but was arrested at the restaurant where he worked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
On Sunday, Domino's told NBC they had not heard about the incident.
"All the stores in California are owned by independent franchisees and because we have no information, we can’t provide comment other than to say we are shocked by the allegation and hope the customer is OK," a spokesman said.
Parker posted bail for $30,000 and is scheduled to be arraigned in March. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
