ESCONDIDO, Calif. — Authorities arrested a woman they say intentionally drove her car into a Subway restaurant in Escondido early Tuesday.
The 22-year old has been identified as Jazmine Price of Escondido. She is charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
Escondido police told FOX 5 they received reports around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday that a woman had driven her car into the Subway in the 2400 block of East Valley Parkway because she had a previous issue with one of the employees.
“That’s ridiculous a car did this?” said Angelita Diorio.
Diorio said Tuesday morning everyone at school was talking about the accident.
“They said a lady got mad and she hit like the other person,” said Diorio. “It’s so crazy, I come here all the time.”
Police said Price crashed her Honda sedan into the restaurant before getting out of the car and attempting to fight one of the two employees inside the location, Escondido police Sgt. Ryan Banks said.
It’s believe Price was in a previous fight with the employee. Police did not say what the fight was about or how the two knew each other.
She was being treated at Palomar Medical Center for evaluation of a complaint of pain to her wrist and is expected to face charges for assault with a deadly weapon, Banks said.
The employee was not injured.
Many residents in neighborhood were shocked by the violent act.
“Everybody gets mad at people, but why do you want to hurt them?” said Barbara Hurst, resident.
“To think that someone had the audacity to think that way is really mindblowing,” said Diorio.
All said whatever the conflict, there are better ways to solve it.
“I personally think words are better than violence,” said Diorio. “Honestly, it’s just all very sad.”
“Don’t do that and what do you have to look forward to you know?” said Hurst. “What about the employees they’re out of a job right now for a while.”
Investigators have yet to determine if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
The store had major damage and it was not immediately known when it would reopen.
Price is being held in Vista on a $30,000 bail. Her arraignment is schedule for November 1.
