The Dover Police Department has arrested a 34-year-old Dover woman after she assaulted an employee at a WAWA store after a mistake was made with her order. The incident occurred at approximately 8:46PM when Tiffany Evans placed an order for a sandwich at the WAWA at 1450 Forrest Avenue. While a male employee was preparing the sandwich, Evans began to yell at him because she believed he was making a mistake. A female co-worker than told Evans to stop talking like that and that another sandwich would be made. Evans began to argue with the female employee and then threw a cup of hot coffee in the employees face, causing burns to her face. The coffee also struck the male employee, causing damage to his personal cell phone that was in his pocket, and damaged approximately $200 worth of food products in the sandwich prep area. The female employee victim walked around the counter and continued to argue with Evans, who then pepper sprayed the employee in the face. Evans then fled in a white Honda Accord.
Evans was identified by the tag number on the vehicle and later turned herself in to the Dover Police Department without incident.
The WAWA store was forced to close for over an hour to allow the pepper spray to dissipate and cleanup the food prep area that was damaged by the thrown coffee.
The female victim was transported by ambulance for minor injuries as a result of the hot coffee being thrown at her.
Tiffany Evans was released on $7,800 unsecured bond on the following charges:
-Assault 3rd Degree
-Assault 2nd Degree
-Criminal Mischief (2x)
