A customer upset over his Wawa sandwich order took it out on the woman behind the counter, according to Delaware State Police.
Terron Reed entered the Wawa at 140 Beaverbrook Plaza in New Castle around 2:30 a.m. Thursday and made an order at the deli area, said police.
The 23-year-old woman behind the counter told Reed that his order couldn’t be made as requested and that is when police said Reed snapped. The 36-year-old threw a coffee display at the employee before going behind the counter and choking her before throwing the woman to the ground.
Reed then threatened to shoot several other employees before fleeing in a gray SUV. Troopers caught up to Reed’s SUV along U.S. Route 13 and arrested the Bear resident.
The woman wasn’t injured in the attack.
Police didn't reveal what type of sandwich Reed tried to order.
A judge arraigned Reed on various counts including strangulation, disorderly conduct, making terroristic threats, DUI and other traffic offenses. Reed then posted $5,500 unsecured bail.
