CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A Southwest Side Chuck E. Cheese employee was charged with two misdemeanors last month for allegedly stabbing a customer in a dispute over a salad plate, police said.

Shardonnae Pruitt, 19, of the 9600 block of South Merrion Avenue, was arrested Sept. 30 and charged with one count each of misdemeanor simple assault and misdemeanor battery, police said.

Pruitt got into a dispute with a customer about 3:15 p.m. Sept. 30 after she took away a salad plate at the restaurant in the 5300 block of South Kedzie Avenue, police said.

The man, 40, threw his utensils on the floor and demanded to see a manager and asked to file a formal complaint, police said. After the manager left, Pruitt allegedly threatened the man and stabbed the 25-year-old woman with him with a box cutter, police said.

The woman was treated and released from an area hospital, according to police.
