An alleged dine-and-dasher was trespassed from a restaurant in the 4000 block of Interstate 35 after he returned twice in the days following his theft, at one point threatening to kill an employee.

The employee called police at about 4:56 a.m. Saturday to report the man had returned to the restaurant. She said that after not paying for a meal Wednesday, he came back Thursday and ran up to her in her car, telling her he was going to kill her.

Officers found the man in the parking lot Saturday morning. He denied ever threatening the employee, although the report does not specify if he gave police a response for his alleged theft or told them why he kept coming back to the restaurant.

The restaurant did not want to press charges for theft, the report states, but the employee wanted to press charges for terroristic threat. The man was trespassed from the business, and an investigation is ongoing.
