Glen Rock NJ, on Thursday August 5th at 8:03 AM , Glen Rock Patrols were dispatched to Super Fresh on Lincoln Avenue to investigate a 9-1-1 report of a dispute in progress which was becoming physical. Upon arrival, both parties had been separated. Investigation found that a customer, a 55-year-old Paterson man, had entered the store and began handling bread from bread boxes with his bare hands. A store employee approached the man asking him not to touch the bread with his hands, providing him with a set of tongs which are available to customers for this purpose. The customer became irate and began waving the tongs in the employee’s face leading to the dispute. Neither party wished to sign complaints. The customer was escorted out of the store, at the request of management, and was advised to shop somewhere else.
