Two Wendy’s employees in North Carolina are alleged to have stabbed one another while they were working at the fast-food restaurant, according to police.
Asheboro Police Department (APD) officers raced to the Wendy’s restaurant at 623 West Dixie Drive after they received reports of a stabbing at about 10:22 a.m. on Monday.
According to Fox affiliate WGHP, police said the two employees had gotten into a fight before they both stabbed one another.
When police arrived, they found a 22-year-old man had been stabbed and he was later taken to hospital for treatment.
The network reported a witness told officers that the suspect ran away from the Wendy’s restaurant.
As a precaution, the APD alerted nearby Asheboro High School and South Asheboro Middle School. Both schools then issued a shelter-in-place order, according to WGHP. The order was later lifted.
A second witness told officers the suspect had fled the scene
