Vienna Police: Suspect Waved Knife at Panera Bread Diners

Vienna police are looking for the suspect who brandished a knife at customers inside the Panera Bread along Maple Avenue.

The incident occurred shortly before 9 p.m. last Friday (Aug. 23) at 136 W. Maple Avenue.

“A subject walked into the store and brandished a knife at customers inside the store,” police said. “The subject then left the store on foot prior to police arrival.”

A Panera Bread employee called the police, according to the report.

In a separate incident, police are investigating an attempted fraud involving the Giant at 359 E. Maple Avenue yesterday (Thursday).

Shortly before midnight, “a person called into Giant and impersonated a security officer for the supermarket chain in an attempt to scam one of their store employees out of a large amount of money,” police said.

“The employee realized it was a scam and hung up the phone before completing the unusual request,” police said.
