It happened about 2:30 a.m. Thursday at a Wawa on Beaverbrook Plaza. Troopers say a man ordered food from the deli, but an employee told him it could not be made the way he wanted.

Officers say the man threw of display stand at the employee, went behind the counter and choked the employee before throwing her to the ground.
