An employee at a Jack-in-the-Box fast food restaurant in Pleasanton was stabbed multiple times early Sunday by a woman customer.
The suspect, identified as Jazmine Vasquez, was arrested Sunday afternoon at a family member's home in Dublin.
Police watch commander Watch Commander Lt. Scott Rohovit reported that Pleasanton police, responding to a panic alarm, rushed to the restaurant at 4295 Valley Ave., near Santa Rita Road, and found the worker with multiple stab wounds. He was taken to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, where he was treated for his injuries and released.
Prior to employees setting off the panic alarm, Vasquez was last seen fleeing on foot eastbound on Valley Avenue by Jack-in-the-Box workers. She was identified by multiple witnesses who were on scene at the time of the incident.
Police detectives viewed surveillance video showing a woman retrieving an object from her purse and moments later stabbing the victim in the back and neck area. She was last seen on the video leaving the restaurant and walking east.
Detectives then identified the suspect and connected her to the Dublin address, where she was arrested and taken to the Alameda County Jail in Dublin.
