Pizza Argument Ends With Stabbing
Aug. 10, 1999
THORNWOOD, N.Y. (AP) _ An argument between two pizza chefs about the best way to make a pie ended when one stabbed the other in the chest, police said.
Fausto Pazmino, 44, was charged with assault and weapon possession.
He and Gaetano Vitole, 34, were working Saturday night at Silvio's Ristorante in Thornwood, north of New York City, when they started arguing about how to make pizza, police said. The argument went on for several hours until Pazmino lunged at Vitole with a knife, police said.
Vitole was stabbed once in the chest and slashed twice on the arm as he tried to block the knife, police said. He spent the night in the hospital and was released Sunday.
