A 29-year-old employee said a man came in through the back door with a knife. The armed man began walking around the bar and threatening the employee’s life and the life of several patrons.

The man soon left the bar, but as a 27-year-old woman arrived to deliver food to the establishment she saw the same man still holding a knife outside.

Feeling unsafe, she decided against stopping at the bar. But, as she began to drive away, the suspicious man made slashing motions towards and at the back of her car. No damage was done to her vehicle.
