SYRACUSE, N.Y. — An employee of Carmelcorn at Destiny USA was stabbed in the hand after confronting a man who stole a bag of chips on Wednesday night, according to Syracuse police.

The employee told police that a man, identified as 19-year-old Luis Torres, stole a bag of chips from the store. The employee confronted the thief “and was able to recover the proceeds,” spokeswoman Sgt. Julie Shulsky said. 

The suspect left but then returned a short time later and began threatening the employee, Shulsky said. The pair then got into a fight, and Torres pulled out a knife and cut the victim’s hand, she said. 

The employee’s injury is minor, she said.

Torres was on scene when officers arrived around 7:52 p.m. and was arrested without incident.

Torres is being charged with second-degree assault, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and petit larceny. 

He’s being held at the Onondaga County Justice Center pending arraignment, Shulsky said.
