Fayetteville police arrested a Wendy’s employee early Friday morning after he allegedly threatened a teenage co-worker with a knife and tried to rape him.
José Jimenez, 24, of 2127 Sunny Lane faces felony charges of terroristic threatening, aggravated assault, second degree battery and attempted rape.
Fayetteville police responded to Wendy’s on North College Avenue at about 4 a.m. in reference to an armed person report.
After interviewing a witness at the scene, police learned that Jimenez had been drinking with a Wendy’s co-worker inside the business, after work. The two reportedly began to argue and went outside the restaurant.
"When they came back in, [Jimenez] grabbed a knife and held it to the victim’s neck," said Lt. Mike Reynolds, of the Fayetteville Police Department. "He started yelling and cursing in both Spanish and English."
According to Reynolds, another employee went into the manager’s office to call 911.
"When she thought he was gone, she came back out, but [Jimenez ] was still there," Reynolds said. "She tried to wrestle the knife away from him, but he swung at her and almost cut her hand."
Reynolds said the employee went back into the manager’s office. When she looked back, she reportedly saw Jimenez force the victim to his knees while holding him by the hair.
"The witness said Jimenez held the knife up to the victim and demanded oral sex," he said.
