Worker At Cambridge Restraunt Stabs 2 Co-Workers
Two men were stabbed Sunday morning at a Cambridge restaurant, and the alleged assailant is currently in custody facing a variety of charges.
According to police, the incident happened on Sunday, Oct. 31 just before 11 a.m. at Q Mandarin Buffet on 100 Main Street in Cambridge. The police report named 49-year old Qing-Hai Jiang as the man who stabbed two co-workers at the restaurant, then fled on foot.
One kitchen worker at Q Mandarin told WCCO of Minneapolis that the stabbing was the result of horseplay.
“They were just joking around and he attacked one guy in the throat with a meat cleaver,” Nick Sanford, who works in the kitchen, told WCCO. “And the boss tried to step in and got a severe injury to the hand.”
Police found Jiang hiding in a nearby shed a few hours later. The shed where Jiang was hiding was just a half-block from the Isanti County Sheriff’s Department.
The conditions of the two men who were stabbed have not yet been released, but multiple outlets have reported that they were hospitalized with one man even being transported to a different hospital.
Jiang is currently in custody and the Isanti County Attorney’s Office will review the case for charges against Jiang including attempted murder and assault.
