Marco Island man accused of threatening to stab restaurant employee with knife


NAPLES, Fla. — A Marco Island man has been arrested after he allegedly threatened to stab a restaurant employee with a box cutter knife Friday afternoon.

According to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO), at around 12:48 p.m., deputies responded to the Chilakil restaurant at 11225 Tamiami Trail E where a shirtless man had left the restaurant after threatening to stab employees with a knife.

The man identified as 27-year-old Sean Mcmullen was seen sitting at a nearby picnic table when deputies arrived. He was detained by deputies, CCSO said.

According to the report, Mcmullen told deputies he had no idea what was going on. Deputies found a box cutter knife in his pocket and confiscated it.

Employees and witnesses told deputies that Mcmullen had came into the restaurant earlier to use a wall outlet for charging his phone. Employees told Mcmullen he could charge his phone as long as he bought something from the store, CCSO said.

According to CCSO, Mcmullen did not buy anything and charged his phone while hiding a beer he had brought from outside the restaurant.

When an employee told Mcmullen he needed to leave, he stared at her, pulled out a box cutter knife and began swinging it in the air, CCSO said.


According to the report, Mcmullen told a nearby customer that he was going to stab the employee.

Mcmullen faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Mcmullen was taken to the Naples Jail.
