GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A former store employee accused of hitting a customer with a pipe over a piece of pizza has been formally charged in the case.
Mittermann Singh, 40, was arraigned Wednesday morning on one misdemeanor count of assault and battery.
The incident happened in October at Fannie’s Corner on Eastern Avenue SE, north of Franklin Avenue.
The victim’s daughter told 24 Hour News 8 the worker repeatedly hit her mother with a lead pipe after she said she was unhappy with a piece of pizza she purchased at the store.
She said her mother suffered a concussion during the attack and needed staples in her head.
The Kent County Prosecutor’s Office initially decided not to press charges because of conflicting stories from witnesses and police couldn’t find a weapon.
Mittermann is out of jail on bond. He is expected back in court Feb. 11.
