ASHEBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — Two Wendy’s employees reportedly stabbed each other while at work on West Dixie Drive in Asheboro, according to the Asheboro Police Department.
At 10:22 a.m. Monday, police responded to a reported stabbing at the Wendy’s located at 623 West Dixie Drive in Asheboro.
Police said two employees got into a fight, and that they both stabbed each other.
Officers found a 22-year-old suffering from a stab wound at the scene when they arrived. He was taken to a hospital.
A witness told officers that the suspect ran away from the scene. As a precaution, police told Asheboro High School and South Asheboro Middle School SROs because the schools are close to the Wendy’s. The schools issued a shelter-in-place order. The order was later lifted.
Another witness told police that the suspect was in a gold Toyota passenger car that drove away from the scene “in a careless and reckless manner,” according to the news release.
The sheriff’s office found the suspect vehicle in Randleman and arrested the suspect without incident. The suspect was taken to a hospital with a stab wound.
