McDonald’s Employee Stabbed Over Bet
His co-worker was arrested and charged with assault.
A Woodlawn man was arrested Tuesday for picking a fight with a co-worker over a bet, according to a police incident summary report.
The two men work(ed) at the McDonald's at the intersection of York and Shawan roads.
Lloyd Anthony Cook, 43, of the 2000 block of Woodlawn Drive, confronted his co-worker at the McDonald's at about 4:30 p.m., Tuesday. The two began arguing, which escalated into a fight. Cook pulled a flathead screwdriver and stabbed the victim, lacerating his arm.
The victim began hitting Jones with an umbrella, causing considerable damage, leaving Cook “covered in blood,” according to a police spokeswoman.
The victim declined a trip to the hospital. Cook was treated by paramedics at the Precinct 7 police station where he was charged with first and second degree assault.
