Man protests price of meal, throws rock at restaurant’s window

8:52 p.m. Wednesday, June 12, area of W. 64th Avenue and Ward Road

A man reportedly threw a rock at a restaurant window after arguing with the manager about the price of his food.

The suspect, a white man in his 50s or 60s and about 5-feet-8-inches to 5-feet-10-inches with grey hair, told his waiter that he was upset and wanted to speak to a manager about his meal, which cost about $13.75.

When the manager went over to him and asked how everything was, the man started cussing him out, saying he’d pay whatever he wanted to pay.

After the manager explained the restaurant’s pricing, the man demanded the owner’s phone number, which the manager refused to give him. The man then said “I make the rules, and I make the prices.”

The man eventually paid his bill with a $20 bill. When the manager gave him his change, the man grabbed for his change and grabbed his hand and forearm in an aggressive way. The manager was not injured.

The manager told the man to never come back to the restaurant, as which point the man was walking out of the breezeway door. The then turned around and cocked his fist as if he was going to hit the manager, but then left the building.

After getting in his grey truck, the manager heard a loud crash at the front of the store, which the manager believed to be a rock being thrown against the window. There was no damage to the building.

No action was taken against the man.

While checking the balance of his checking account on June 14, the man saw that a check had been cashed for $550.

He was able to pull up a copy of the check on his phone and the check had his signature on it and was written to a third party.

On June 14, the man confronted the woman about the incident and at first she denied knowing anything about it. She then admitted she was involved and agreed to meet the man at noon on June 15 to return the money.

Police called to residence following argument

8:40 p.m. Saturday, June 15, 4900 block of W. 66th Avenue

Police were called to the 4900 block of W. 66th Avenue about a possible domestic disturbance between a husband and wife.

The husband told police that the couple has been married for five years and earlier in the day they started to argue over an apple pie that she had made him.

The argument made the wife very upset.

The man left their home for a while to allow his wife to calm down, during which time she continually texted him, asking where he was, to which he did not reply.

When the man returned home, his wife was still upset at him for leaving and not telling her where he went. The man told police that he believed her “over-reaction” to everything was due to the fact that she is several months pregnant with their first child.

The man said they would be able to sort out their differences and if things got heated he would spend the night at his mother’s house.

The man and woman both said at no point during the argument did either person get physical with the other or make threats.

No action was taken against the couple.
