A 78-year-old Costco shopper was punched in the face Sunday morning after getting into a dispute with another customer who he believed was taking too many Nutella waffles from a sample cart, police said.
Burbank resident Derrick Gharabighi, 24, had snagged several samples when the elderly shopper told him to take just one, Burbank police Officer Cindy Guillen told Times Community News.
That’s when Gharabighi reportedly punched the man in the face. The man was hospitalized with a one-inch cut and swelling above his eye, Guillen said.
Gharabighi was arrested on suspicion of elder abuse and is due in court this week.
