Centralia police are investigating a stabbing Wednesday that left two injured in a McDonalds off Lum Road in Lewis County, according to a news release.
The suspect, a man between 35 and 40 years old, entered the restaurant and became vulgar toward a woman working at the register. Two customers intervened and told the suspect to leave, which he did, police said.
The suspect then returned a short time later and stabbed one customer twice in the abdomen, police said. The victim, a man in his 50s, had confronted the suspect previously.
A second customer tackled the suspect into a window and fell to the floor. The customer, employees and victim then disarmed and held the suspect until authorities arrived.
“(The suspect) sustained cuts from his head going through a window,” Det. Sgt. Carl Buster said.
The victim suffered internal bleeding, and was treated at Providence Centralia Hospital, where he was in stable condition Wednesday, Buster said.
The suspect was treated at the hospital, then booked into the Lewis County Jail.
No other participants were injured.
