A 45-year-old woman in North Carolina has been arrested after she allegedly stabbed a teenage girl over a sandwich mix-up at Jimmy John’s.
The incident occurred on April 25th in High Point.
Authorities say they were called to the restaurant on North Main Street at 5:50 p.m. after an unruly customer stabbed an employee.
According to the report, Demetris Holeman became mad at the teen behind the counter due to a mix-up with her sandwich.
Holeman began throwing items at the 16-year-old before allegedly stabbing her with an edged weapon and fleeing the scene.
The teen was transported to an area hospital with serious but non-fatal injuries.
“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,” High Point police Capt. Patrick O’Toole remarked to WXII. “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.”
Employees also told investigators that the woman frequents the store and has previously been refused service.
Holeman was eventually located at her home and arrested. She is charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and injury to real property for the damages to the store.
