COVINA, Calif. — A Domino’s pizza delivery driver in California is accused of stabbing a customer after they got into an argument about how long it took for the pizza to arrive, according to Covina Police.

The 31-year-old driver arrived at a home in the 600 block of North Mangrove Avenue in Covina around 11:30 p.m. Saturday, according to police.

Upon his arrival, an altercation ensued over the delayed delivery.

Police said the delivery driver, Michael Charles Parker, of Glendora, stabbed the 20-year-old victim in the wrist and neck.

The victim was taken to a local trauma center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Parker was taken into custody for assault with a deadly weapon. He posted bail for $30,000 and is expected to appear in court on March 21.

NBC News reported that a Domino’s spokesman released a statement saying:

“Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We haven’t heard anything about of this. All the stores in California are owned by independent franchisees and because we have no information, we can’t provide comment other than to say we are shocked by the allegation and hope the customer is OK.”
