Chuck E. Cheese Employee Accused of Stabbing Customer

 Posted on October 20, 2012 in Criminal Defense

An argument about a salad plate escalated into an alleged stabbing and an arrest. The Chicago Tribune is reporting that last month, 19 year old Chuck E. Cheese employee Shardonnae Pruitt was charged with simple assault and battery after stabbing a patron with a box cutter.

The incident occurred at the restaurant/arcade chain, Chuck E. Cheese’s Kedzie Ave.location. According to the report, a 40 year old male customer became very irate when Pruitt took his salad plate away from him. The man threw his eating utensils on the floor and demanded to see the manager. He told the manager he wanted to file a formal complaint. When the manager stepped away, eyewitnesses told police that Pruitt threatened the man and then pulled a box cutter and used it to stab the 25 year old woman that was with the man. The woman was treated at and released from a local hospital.

Pruitt was held by security until police arrived and arrested her. She has been charged with simple assault and battery. There has been no statement released by Chuck E. Cheese corporate about the incident. The Huffington Post is reporting that another crime took place at the chain’s Pittsburgh location. In that incident, a child’s birthday party was interrupted by violence when a woman was upset that her ex had invited his new girlfriend to the party. The woman then attacked multiple other women with a brick and a knife.
