Man Threatens Grocery Store Employees With Meat Tenderizing Mallet
“Two of the victims indicated that Thrift approached them with a tenderizer raised in a threatening manner as if to strike them,” Bonney said. “He reportedly then told the employees that he would kill them if they didn’t give him his 18-month-old kid and wife back.”
Bonney said it appears Thrift's wife may have taken their 18-month-old to their vehicle when the child started to cry inside the store.
