A man who allegedly stabbed a Jack in the Box manager over the restaurant’s mask requirement has been arrested.
Around 8 p.m. March 17, League City police officers responded to a stabbing at a Jack in the Box restaurant in League City, Texas.
A white man, later identified by police as James Henry Schulz Jr., 54, stabbed a manager at the restaurant after refusing to wear a mask as part of the company policy at the time, police said.
Additional employees intervened to defend their coworker, and the suspect left the scene before police arrived, according to Lake City police.
The store manager could be seen on video showing the suspect the sign with store protocol, police noted.
Schulz began to leave, then turned around and ran up to the manager, stabbing him multiple times with a pocketknife, according to police.
But, the suspect escaped punishment for months. Until a tip led police to a shopping center in Houston, and Schulz was found inside 2-A-Day Sports Bar on Sept. 29.
Schulz is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and his bond is set at $40,000.
