Popeyes Chicken - 77 Yr Senior Experienced KNIFE Fight by Mgr While at Restaurant
3622 AUBURN ST. ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS -- Sun. July 21, 2013 went to restaurant to get dinner around 8:00PM. Fight broke out between Mgr. & woman, while I was asked to sit in parking lot & wait for food. Just getting to box to order was too long. 10 min. in 80+ weather. Then asked to drive out in traffic around to parking lot & then wait again. after waiting again, fight broke out in parking lot between Mgr. & woman, cursing, then fist fighting, then he went in & came out w/ very large knife & threw it across lot @ woman who started fight by slapping mgr. first & cursing. 3 others got out of car & beat Mgr. when staff freed him that's when he went inside and got knife. 4 other cars in lot . All afraid. Others could have guns. I laid down in car til Police came. I still waited for my meal. No one came out.
After about one half hr. I went to window while police still there. Girl waitress was still shaken & confused, but gave meal. This was too much!
Please clean up that staff, but not window waitress. never before experienced anything like this. woman wrong but mgr. could have hurt someone else. Temper like this is unsafe for other employees & patrons.
