An assault took place at Skorpios Maggio’s Family Restaurant after people asked for utensils for food they purchased elsewhere, according to police and the owners.
The alleged incident happened shortly before 3 p.m. on Wednesday (April 8) at 421 Maple Ave E., Vienna police say.
“The restaurant owners reported some people came into the restaurant requesting utensils for some food they purchased elsewhere,” the police report said. “After providing the individuals with the utensils, an altercation occurred between all parties.”
Juan Vazquez, a spokesperson for the Vienna Police Department, declined to comment on the case, saying that it’s an active investigation.
The owners behind the restaurant, Chris and Sherry Maggio, posted about the alleged assault on Facebook. The photos they posted show food on Chris and covering the ground and window outside of the restaurant.
Sherry Maggio told Tysons Reporter that females came in asking for utensils before the situation became violent and messy with thrown food.
“It was just this whole messy thing,” Sherry said, claiming the females returned with men who allegedly pushed Chris before the police came.
Though the couple said they are both okay, Sherry said that they are concerned for their safety.
Vazquez said that all of the people involved in the incident were told about the warrant process if they want to press charges.
This isn’t the first time police received reports of an assault at the restaurant.
The restaurant was vandalized about half of a dozen times this winter, which included smeared ketchup on the restaurant’s windows and van and “tire slime” placed on the sidewalk, furniture and statue outside, according to Vienna police reports.
In January, a man spat at Sherry and threw hot coffee on her, according to Vienna police reports. Police arrested a 34-year-old man and charged him with simple assault and battery.
Vazquez said that the alleged assault on Wednesday isn’t connected to the previous incidents.
The restaurant plans to stay open with limited hours, the post added.
“We understand that this is a very stressful time for all and it seems like things are not getting better,” the Facebook post said. “We, as part of the Town of Vienna believe that we are in this together.”
