Two male McDonald's employees in Idaho decided to start off their morning with a McStabbing. According to KTVB, the employees in question got into an altercation inside the restaurant "before it opened for business" and one man stabbed the other in the chest. The suspect — 41-year-old Roberto Ramos-Valencia — made a run for it. Police found him at his house a short while later, took him into custody, and charged him with aggravated battery.

The victim was taken to the hospital where he was treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The franchise owner noted in a statement: "I'm shocked and concerned by the incident that occurred this morning. I'm working closely with the police in their investigation and I will be taking the appropriate actions as an employer." This isn't the first time a stabbing has occurred near a McDonald's this year: In June, a man walked into a location in New York with a large kitchen knife sticking out between his shoulder blades after he got into an argument with two men outside of the restaurant.
