CHICAGO — Police are searching for a former Taco Bell employee who stabbed a manager of a restaurant in the Gold Coast.
Chicago police said the 27-year-old manager was working at the Taco Bell on the 0-100 block of East Chicago Avenue around 10:25 p.m. Thursday when a 47-year-old man walked into the restaurant and demanded his paycheck.
When the manager could not provide it at that moment, the man jumped behind the counter and attacked him with a box cutter.
The manager suffered two cuts to the back of his head and one on his arm. He was taken to Northwestern Hospital in fair condition.
