Mother Stabbed And Killed Her Daughter In Texas Park: Sheriff's Office pixabay

A man has been arrested for trying to kill a convenience store owner over a cup of coffee in Ota City, Gunma Prefecture, Japan on Tuesday, Oct. 25.

The accused, a 60-year-old man, reportedly paid for a black coffee at a convenience store on Tuesday, Oct. 25. After paying the money, when he went over to the coffee machine to pour the coffee for himself, he pushed the “latte” button instead of the “black coffee” button and poured himself a more expensive cup of coffee than what he’d paid for, Japan Today reported.

The owner of the convenience store witnessed this and confronted the accused. However, the accused told the store owner that he needed to use the restroom and walked away. Instead of going to the restroom, the accused tried to escape in his car which was parked in the parking lot outside the store.

Seeing the man walk away, the owner followed the man to the parking lot. When the accused tried to drive away, the store owner jumped in front of the vehicle and clung onto the windscreen wipers of the vehicle in an attempt to stop the man from leaving.

However, the man drove off with the owner still clinging to the windscreen wipers, dragging him down a road for several hundred meters until the owner fell away from the car. The owner hit his head hard during the fall and was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a man stabbed a fellow customer at a Manhattan establishment after a heated argument broke out over the amount of sugar in the assailant's McDonald’s coffee, as previously reported.

The incident reportedly happened at a McDonald’s branch on Eighth Avenue near West 35th Street at 8:20 a.m on Tuesday, Sept. 21.

The victim, 57, was reportedly eating at the store when the suspect complained to the store security guard that his coffee was too sweet. After the man came to the defense of the security guard, a brawl erupted between the two customers which resulted in the suspect pulling out a blade and stabbing the victim in the chest before fleeing the scene.

Emergency medical services responded to the spot and immediately rushed the victim to a nearby hospital where he was treated for a minor injury.
