Mentally Ill Man Attacks An Old Lady With A Coffee Pot Inside of an IHOP
The attack happened on September 29, 2019 at an International House of Pancakes near 51st Avenue and McDowell Road in Phoenix, Arizona.
Surveillance video caught a man sitting in a booth before getting up and attacking two women. He hit them several times with a coffee pot and then continues to throw plates and mugs at the two ladies.
Other restaurant patrons, that included a family with a baby, ran away from the area of the incident.
One of the victims hid behind an employee in the kitchen as the man continued to go after the other visibly injured woman, who had blood dripping down from her head.
When officers arrived, they found the man running through the parking lot and throwing things around the restaurant.
Joe Meza is a 47 year old homeless veteran and was arrested facing charges of aggravated assault, theft and disorderly conduct.
"The defendant struck the victim 5 or 6 times over the head, causing her to nearly fall to the ground while the first victim attempts to get away," according to the police report.
It's still unclear what provoked the attack, but according to court papers the man is mentally disturbed.
