(LATIMES) — A Burbank man was charged Tuesday with punching a 78-year-old Costco shopper who confronted him about taking too many Nutella waffles from a sample cart, authorities said.
Derrick Gharabighi, 24, was at the warehouse store in Burbank on Sunday when he walked over to the Nutella sample station. As the elderly shopper reached out to grab one, Gharabighi snatched all the Nutella samples, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.
“The victim told Mr. Gharabighi that he wanted a sample and he shouldn’t take so many,” Burbank police Sgt. Claudio Losacco said.
