Elk Grove Man Allegedly Threatens Fast Food Employees With Axe

February 11, 2016 |

An Elk Grove man is being held at the Sacramento County Jail after he allegedly threatened fast food employees late last night.

Elk Grove Police officers were dispatched to the McDonald's on the 8200 block of Laguna Boulevard after employees reported a customer in the drive-thru threatened them with an axe. Officers contacted 28-year old Manuel Anthony Valdes (pictured above), who fit the description of the suspect.

Upon contact, officers located a large axe in Valdes' vehicle. Valdes also displayed objective signs of impairment.

Valdes was arrested and booked into the county jail where he is being held on $80,000 bail and facing three vehicle code felony charges, one felonious threat charge, and two misdemeanor charges. His arraignment is scheduled for next Wednesday.
