T-Mobile employee Darnell Schoolfield 'stabs customer after he complained his bill was too high'
Police say a T-Mobile customer was critically stabbed by a store employee after complaining his cell phone bill was too high in a horrific attack caught on camera.
Carrying an employee name tag of 21-year-old Darnell Schoolfield to police in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, his alleged victim said it belonged to the man who attacked him before it was ripped it from his shirt.
'Apparently he was double-billed. During the course of the verbal exchange it becomes heated,' Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood told WPVI of the motive behind the afternoon attack.
'The next thing you know it becomes physical,' he said.
Store surveillance capturing the incident shows the 59-year-old victim heading outside the store when the employee is clearly seen sticking something into his side.
'As the victim is going out of the store after the altercation, you can see store clerk stab him in the side,' said Mr Chitwood of the footage.
Police said the victim didn't realize he had been stabbed until driving himself to a police station and noticing the open wound.
'He looks down and sees blood pouring out of his side and said, "Oh my God, I'm stabbed,' said Mr Chitwood.
