Falmouth man has axe to grind with Dunkin Donuts

This story was so crazy I had to share it. Apparently someone really dislikes Subway and Dunkin Donuts in Falmouth.

from Northern Forecaster:

Police say a local man took a hatchet to the entrance door and drive-through window of two Route 1 businesses Monday night.

Peter Hamilton, 58, “went on a rampage with a hatchet” at about 9 p.m., shattering the exterior door that led to a lobby with separate interior entrances to Subway and Dunkin’ Donuts, Lt. John Kilbride said. No one was hurt in the incident in which Hamilton also smashed the coffee shop’s drive-through window and took the hatchet to a license plate on a vehicle in the parking lot, Kilbride said.

“It’s the randomness of it – you don’t see it coming,” he said.

After receiving descriptions of Hamilton and his vehicle from several employees, police picked him up at gunpoint in the Walmart parking lot, where he’d fled in his car after the attack, Kilbride said.

Hamilton was arrested and charged with aggravated criminal mischief, carrying a concealed weapon and violation of condition of release. He is currently in the Cumberland County Jail, Kilbride said.
