A 17-year-old girl was arrested after she reportedly threw a knife at a store clerk during a dispute over customer service Tuesday afternoon, Wichita police said.
The teen began arguing with the 22-year-old clerk at a business Nomar International Food store, 2056 N. Broadway, shortly before 3 p.m., Lt. Doug Nolte said. The dispute escalated to the point that the clerk threw some crackers at the suspect, who responded by picking up a 10-inch kitchen knife and throwing it at her.
The knife struck the clerk in the hand, Nolte said, causing a four-inch laceration. The teen was booked into the Juvenile Intake and Assessment Center.
The clerk was taken to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis for treatment and later released.
