Waiting on food delivery can be stressful. Unfortunately for one Domino’s customer, a late delivery also resulted in getting stabbed by their delivery driver.
On Sunday, 31-year-old Domino’s delivery driver Michael Charles Parker arrived at the Corvina, California, home of a customer around 11:30 p.m., one and a half hours late. An argument broke out between Parker and the customer over delivery time, and in response Parker stabbed the customer, according to NBC Los Angeles, which writes, “[t]he customer suffered lacerations to his neck, hands and wrists.”
The Los Angeles County Fire Department treated the customer on-site before bringing him to a trauma center. Police officers say the wounds were serious, but not life-threatening. After the incident, Parker returned to work at the Domino’s on Cypress Street. He was shortly arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
Regarding the incident, a Domino’s spokesperson said, “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.”
