Police in Texas are currently searching for a suspect after he entered a Jack in the Box restaurant, refused to put on a mask, was about to leave, and then stabbed a worker while he had his back turned to him.
According to the Associated Press, police have identified the suspect as James Schulz.
The stabbing occurred on Wednesday, but Schulz has evaded police for the last three days.
League City Police just released surveillance video showing the attack.
The manager had three stab wounds in the arm and upper torso, police said. He was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released.
Jack in the Box is still requiring patrons to wear masks in its restaurants unless the individual is actively eating or drinking. People are also required to follow social distancing rules.
Texas Governor Abbott last week announced that he was lifting all state-wide mask wearing and social distancing mandates despite only a small percentage of his state having been vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.
Restaurants and other business owners have seen a flurry of disorderly incidents after that announcement, despite private businesses still attempting to follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
