LEOMINSTER — On Monday, May 30 at 1:40 a.m. Officer Tanner Jakola of the Leominster Police Department was dispatched to the Denny’s on Commercial Road for a report of a customer making threats.
According to the Personnel Narrative for Officer Jakola, when he arrived on scene he saw a man, later identified as Alberto Gonzalez, 35, waiting near the counter.
The employee who reported the incident to police, reiterated that Gonzalez had been making threats. The employee and Officer Jakola went outside so they could discuss the matter without Gonzalez in earshot.
“[The employee] stated the following: Alberto placed an order online through DoorDash. The order was accidentally bumped out by a chef and Alberto’s order was erased,” wrote Officer Jakola in his Personnel Narrative. “When Alberto was advised that he could not get his food or his money back because of this, he threatened to slap [the employee] on the face. [The employee] stated he was in fear of being slapped, but did not want to press charges. [The employee] advised he would like Alberto trespassed from Denny’s forever.”
According to Officer Jakola, Gonzalez said he was upset he couldn’t get his food or money back. Officer Jakola responded by telling him to contact the manager of the Denny’s or email DoorDash to get his money back.
“Alberto denied ever threatening to slap [the employee] in the face. Due to [the employee] being in fear of Alberto, I advised Alberto that he is trespassed for life from the establishment. Alberto understood,” wrote Officer Jakola in his Personnel Narrative.
Gonzalez was charged with Disturbing the Peace.
