One of the suspects demanded more cheese, before both suspects cornered an employee and knocked off their hat, which led to a fight. During the dispute, a suspect took out a gun, while the other suspect repeatedly urged her to “shoot them!”
Witnesses at the scene report the gun toted by one of the suspects misfired. The eatery was trashed by the suspects as well, who “threw food and trash at the victims and around the restaurant,” and “threw the computer and cash register off of the counter,” according to Columbus Police.
During the incident, the victims retreated to the back of the restaurant and hid in the manager’s office, where police were called. Columbus Police said a cell phone was stolen from one of the victims, and one victim had a cut on their hand following the fight.
According to Central Ohio Crime Stoppers, “The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle without their extra cheese.”
Images of the suspects captured on surveillance cameras were provided. If you have any information about the incident, contact Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at 614-461-8477.
