Texas man stabs quick-foods personnel soon after getting questioned to have on mask

Police are on the lookout for a man suspected of stabbing an staff at a fast-food items restaurant in the Houston-metro area on March 17 soon after a confrontation about the restaurant’s mask policy.

The League Town Law enforcement Department suggests in a news launch that the 53-calendar year-previous guy “refused to cooperate” with Jack in the Box’s face mask plan. The suspect confronted staff members and then attacked the cafe supervisor with what law enforcement believe that was a pocket knife.
