An armed Applebee's customer in New York helped stop a man who allegedly attacked the staff with a steak knife, police say.
New Hartford police officers responded to the restaurant around 6:42 p.m. Saturday for multiple reports of a fight involving a knife and a handgun.
Once on scene officers learned that 28-year-old Esteban F. Padron entered the restaurant after being asked to leave on a previous date due to acting disorderly.
Applebee’s staff recognized Padron from the previous incident and immediately asked him to leave. While escorting Padron out, he began attacking an Applebee’s staff member. Padron was able to run back behind the bar, grab a steak knife and continue fighting with multiple staff members, according to a news release on social media.
