A man allegedly threatened to shoot up a Springfield bakery because they were upset with service, according to a police report.
An employee at Schuler’s Bakery, 1911 S. Limestone St., reported a man, a woman and a juvenile entered the business to buy a cake at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The employee told police the man became belligerent about service and told employees he was going to a different location for better service after about 15 minutes, according to a police report.
The suspect later called the South Limestone Street location wanting to file a complaint. Employees told the man he would have to call back in the morning to speak with management and that they were not allowed to give out personal cell phone numbers, the report said.
The man then began cussing at the employee and screaming about employees were rude and waited too long to help his family. He then told the employee: “My family is not to be played with, we will come shoot the place up!”
Suspect information is still unknown, the report said.
