Description of Incident:
An unsatisfied customer who demanded quicker service responded by assaulting a cashier at an IHOP in Oakland Park. Broward Sheriff’s Office violent crimes detectives are releasing surveillance video in the hopes of identifying the angry, belligerent woman.
The early morning assault occurred approximately 3:45 Saturday, October 6 at the IHOP at 3101 W. Oakland Park Blvd. The impatient customer got very upset with the cashier and started using profanity while complaining about the slow service. The customer started to leave the restaurant, but instead, turned back around when she thought she heard the cashier laughing at her.
The suspect then pulled what witnesses said was a knife or other cutting instrument from her waistband area and threatened to kill the cashier. A man intervened and pulled the suspect away. The two left in a gray SUV.
