Gabriel Villalba was arrested last Thursday after he allegedly stabbed a complaining customer. The 28-year-old Del Taco employee was working in Southern California.
According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, the unidentified victim approached Villalba at the drive-thru window at the Hemet branch, where he complained that his order was wrong.
The argument became physical and Villalba pulled out a knife and stabbed the customer in the stomach.
Villalba was booked into the Larry Smith Correctional Facility on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
The victim is in serious condition but is expected to survive.
