Burger rage: Worker at Dorchester Burger King wields knife in confrontation with patron, police say

Boston Police report arresting a worker at the Burger King at Washington Street and Columbia Road in Dorchester for the way he allegedly used a knife to try to have it his way in a dispute with a patron Thursday morning.

Police say that a patron waiting in line objected to the "disrespectful behavior" being shown by Pedro Carbuccia, 50, towards an elderly customer.

The victim intervened, advising the suspect to show more respect, which led to a verbal altercation. Subsequently, the suspect emerged from behind the counter brandishing a knife, challenging the victim to engage in a physical altercation. Store employees intervened and escorted the suspect outside in an effort to defuse the situation, while the victim contacted 911. Upon police arrival, the suspect was taken into custody without further incident.

Carbuccia was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon. Dorchester Municipal Court Judge Samir Zaganjori released him on personal recognizance at his arraignment yesterday, according to court records. He was ordered to stay away from the Burger King while the case proceeds.

Innocent, etc.
