Dispute over plate resulted in stabbing at Chuck E. Cheese, police say

CHICAGO (MCT) — A Chuck E. Cheese employee is accused of stabbing a woman with a box cutter after an argument about a salad plate, Chicago police said.

Shardonnae Pruitt, 19, was charged with simple assault and battery after the incident late last month, according to Police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak.

The patron, 25, told police Pruitt stabbed her on Sept. 30 at the restaurant at 5030 S. Kedzie Ave., Kubiak said.

The patron was with a 40-year-old man who became angry that Pruitt had taken away his salad plate and threw his utensils on the floor and demanded to see the manager, police said.

Pruitt returned with the manager, and the man asked to make a formal complaint against Pruitt, police said. When the manager stepped away, Pruitt threatened the man and pulled out the box cutter and stabbed the woman, police said, citing reports.

Security guards at the restaurant detained Pruitt until police arrived.

The woman was taken to Holy Cross Hospital, where she was treated and released.

A manager of the Chuck E. Cheese declined comment Tuesday.

Pruitt is due back in court on Nov. 14., according to court records.
