The Roseville Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying a drive-through restaurant customer who threw hot food at his server, causing serious burns.
At about 9 p.m. Friday, December 3, customers in a green 80s model Honda Civic four-door sedan occupied by four teenagers went through the drive-through at Boston Market, 5003 Foothills Boulevard. They ordered a small serving of creamed spinach. The server delivered the food to the driver, and moments later was struck on the side of his face by the hot, sticky food. The vehicle then sped away.
No angry words were reported between the server and the customers, and it appeared the hot food had been thrown as a malicious prank. The server sought medical treatment for painful burns on the side of his face and neck.
The driver of the vehicle was described as a white male in his late teens, 5’9″ and 150 pounds, with short, spiked blond hair. He was wearing a blue and gray plaid shirt. A white female juvenile sat in the passenger’s side front seat, and two male juveniles were in the back seat.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Roseville Crime Stoppers at (916)783-STOP (783-7867). Callers may remain anonymous, and may be eligible for a cash reward for information leading to an arrest.
