In the midst of an argument at a Baton Rouge fast-food restaurant on Monday, a woman forced her way into the establishment’s kitchen and grabbed a knife, threatening an employee with it, authorities said.
The first time that 31-year-old April Danielle London began arguing with a manager at Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers at 6464 Siegen Lane on just before 4 p.m., London pulled out a can of mace despite being told to leave several times, according to an East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s office report.
London was pushed out of the joint by the manager and another employee but returned through another entrance, the report says.
While being filmed on surveillance cameras, London made her way to Freddy’s kitchen and grabbed a knife, approaching the two employees before she was disarmed by a fourth person, the report says.
London, who was captured while she was trying to flee on a city bus, admitted to grabbing a knife and pursuing the store’s manager, according to the document. Her actions were also seen on the video footage, and witnesses identified her as the person who tried to attack the manager, the document says.
London, of 6764 Rembrandt Ave., was booked into the Parish Prison on aggravated assault with a knife, entering after being forbidden and simple battery.
She was not assigned bail as of Tuesday, according to jail records.
