OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City man was arrested after allegedly assaulting a fast-food worker and stealing food.

On April 15, officers were called to two fast-food restaurants in the 9000 block of S. Western Ave. in regards to a man acting strangely.

According to an arrest affidavit, employees at a Carl’s Jr. said that a man walked into the restaurant and starting screaming for them to give him some food.

When they asked him to leave, he walked across the street to an Arby’s.

Employees at the Arby’s say the man, who was identified as 36-year-old Dante Anderson, walked in screaming and demanding food.

The arrest affidavit claims Anderson jumped on the front counter and continued to demand food.

The victim told police that Anderson grabbed her by the arms and pushed her against a wall.

The arrest affidavit claims Anderson grabbed a handful of bacon and chicken and walked out of the restaurant. As he was walking out, witnesses say he somehow broke the glass door.

Witnesses say after leaving the Arby’s, the alleged suspect was seen kicking two vehicles that were stopped at a red light.

Officers caught up with him outside a Taco Mayo, where he was seen lying on the ground.

“[Anderson] stated that his ankle was broken and he needed to go to the hospital. [Anderson’s] right hand was also covered in blood,” the arrest affidavit reads. “[Anderson] was asked how his ankle got hurt and [Anderson] said, ‘I kicked two cars when I was crossing the street.’ [Anderson] stated, ‘I am from Planet Earth 2016 and I am four years advanced on you and you guys are always trying to kill me. On my Planet Earth, everyone is dead and I walked here from there. I just want my ankle fixed.”

Anderson was arrested charges of first-degree robbery and several city charges, including destruction of property, larceny and assault and battery.
