An employee at a Jack in the Box fast food restaurant in Pleasanton was stabbed multiple times early Sunday by a female customer, according to police.
The suspect, later identified as Jazmine Vasquez, was arrested Sunday afternoon at a family member's home in Dublin.
Police watch commander Lt. Scott Rohovit reported that Pleasanton police, responding to a panic alarm, rushed to the restaurant at 4295 Valley Ave. near Santa Rita Road and found the male worker with multiple stab wounds at about 4:30 a.m. The injured man was taken to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, where he was treated for his injuries and released.
Prior to employees setting off the panic alarm, Vasquez was last seen fleeing on foot eastbound on Valley Avenue by Jack in the Box workers, according to police. Authorities allege multiple eyewitnesses identified Vasquez as the attacker.
Police detectives viewed surveillance video showing a woman retrieving an object from her purse and moments later stabbing the victim in the back and neck area. She was last seen on the video leaving the restaurant and walking east.
Detectives later identified the suspect as Vasquez and connected her to a home in Dublin, where she was arrested and taken to the Alameda County Jail in Dublin.
