The threat was made inside the fast food restaurant about 8:45 p.m. Wednesday.

The man was waiting for a coffee from the manager when an argument broke out between them, according to authorities.

“I know all that slick sh-t you been saying,” the man told the McDonald’s worker, according to police. “You always say slick sh-t to me.”

The man then flashed a knife, saying, “I’m gonna gut you,” according to authorities.

The manager gave the man his coffee soon after. The man then left the restaurant.

Police haven’t released a description of the suspect.

Efforts to reach a representative of the McDonald’s weren’t immediately successful.

The incident occurred inside an unidentified bar in The Ellington building at 1301 U St. NW about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday. Alero Restaurant, BIN1301 and Sala Thai all are located at that address.

The individual with the knife flashed the weapon when someone complained about a bill not being paid, according to authorities.

A person was arrested in connection with the incident, police said. But the individual’s identity wasn’t immediately clear.

A man also pulled a gun on a group of people who were helping an intoxicated man in Dupont Circle early yesterday morning, police said.

The encounter happened on the 1600 block of R Street NW about 2 a.m. Wednesday.

The man and the people he threatened eventually fled from area.

Police haven’t released a description of the suspect.
