SANTEE — Santee police officers responded to Burger King on Britain Street at 12:16 p.m. on Jan. 29 in reference to an assault.

Officers met with the complainant, a 34-year-old Burger King employee, who said a female customer placed an order, saying she did not want onion rings that were in the food warmer because they would be cold, the report said.

The Burger King employee told her he would not serve cold onion rings to her, the report said. He also told officers the woman was accompanied by a man who suggested she request a refund.

Again, the Burger King employee tried to explain that he would not serve cold onion rings.

At that point, the male subject told him to “not be disrespecting my girlfriend.”

The employee asked the woman if he was disrespecting her, and that’s when her male companion struck the employee in the head with a food tray and broke his glasses.

The pair left Burger King in a red vehicle.

In other reports:

* Officers responded just after 6 p.m. Jan. 28 to a Santee residence in reference to a 14-year-old female who “has a history of intolerant behavior,” according to an incident report. Police were told the teen became “enraged because one of her younger siblings rolled their eyes’” at her.

According to the report, the teen allegedly knocked the front door of the residence off its hinges. She also reportedly took a hammer and broke her brother’s iPod.

An officer spoke with the teen, and she calmed down, the report said.

Officers indicated they would forward a copy of the incident report to the Department of Juvenile Justice.

* Police responded to a call about a “suspicious person” at Dollar General on Old Number Six Highway at 4:30 p.m. Jan. 26.

A concerned citizen reported seeing a man wearing an eye patch, who was trying to sell several gold chains.

When an officer arrived, several bystanders pointed in the direction of the subject.

The officer asked the man if he was trying to sell items, and he said he wasn’t.

He admitted that he does sell gold jewelry but wasn’t trying to sell any at that time.

The officer warned the man, a 56-year-old Columbia resident, not to sell items within the town limits without first purchasing a business license.

    We can guess the female customer actually wanted a "Whopper" with everything on it.
