Tiffany Evans surrendered to police and is facing assault and threatening charges
A Dover woman has surrendered to police after she allegedly assaulted two Wawa employees over a sandwich order.
Tiffany Evans, 34, allegedly threw hot coffee in the face of a female Wawa worker and then sprayed her with pepper spray. A male co-worker also was hit by the hot beverage.
Police spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman said the incident took place at about 8:46 p.m. Wednesday, April 18 at the 1450 Forrest Avenue location.
Hoffman said Evans had ordered a sandwich and then began to yell at the male employee as he was preparing her meal, claiming he was making it incorrectly.
The female employee told Evans to stop harassing her co-worker and that another sandwich would be prepared. Evans allegedly began to argue with the woman and then threw the coffee in her face.
The woman came around the corner of the food preparation counter and continued to argue with Evans, who then used the pepper spray.
Evans ran from the store and drove away, but police were able to obtain her license number and she turned herself in to Dover police.
The female Wawa employee was taken to the hospital by ambulance for treatment of minor injuries. The male employee was not injured, but his cell phone, which was in a back pocket, was damaged by the coffee.
The Wawa store was closed for more than an hour as the pepper spray dissipated and the food preparation area was cleaned, Hoffman said. The incident resulted in about $200 damage to that space, he added.
Evans is charged with second-degree assault, third-degree assault, offensive touching, two counts of criminal mischief, terroristic threatening and disorderly conduct.
She has been released from custody on a $7,800 unsecured bond.
