MANCHESTER, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — According to police, a man that went into the drive-thru of a McDonald's in New Hampshire threatened its workers with an ax.

At around 10 p.m. Sunday night, the Manchester, N.H. Police Department responded to a McDonald's on Hanover Street for a reported disturbance at the drive-thru window.

According to testimony from the store manager, Eric Mayville of Webster rolled into the drive-thru and began arguing with one of the fast food chain's employees. Police say the employee refused to serve the man, but the suspect did not like that answer and spat through the window. Witness accounts say the man left the area after that and the authorities were called.

Three and a half hours later (at around 1 a.m.), witnesses say the same man returned to threaten the McDonald's employees— armed with an ax in his car. The suspect rolled up to the window again, and this time, employees informed him they were closed for the night. According to police, the suspect drove around the building and remained idle in the parking lot for at least 15 minutes. When employees were headed out, they say Mayville got out of his vehicle, threatened them with the ax, and then left the scene. Police were called back to the scene to find four employees who gave their accounts of what happened.

Later, police spotted Mayville's car and pulled him over, arresting him for criminal threatening and simple assault.
