A Brooklyn woman went dough-nuts, throwing a cup of steaming hot chocolate in the face of a Dunkin’ Donuts counter clerk after he failed to top the drink with whipped cream, police sources said yesterday.
Crazed customer Jasmine Aly, 29, was whipped into such a frenzy about the beverage oversight that she also scratched the worker’s face and then ripped the door off a refrigerator and hit him in the head with it.
“There was an argument, the poor guy, something with whipped cream,” said Attila Aydogan, a co-worker of attack victim Aburaykl Rajaddaev. “He had chocolate all over him.”
The cocoa imbroglio started at about 6 a.m. Wednesday, when Aly, who has a history of drug and prostitution arrests, entered the Dunkin’ Donuts inside an Exxon gas station at 30-31 Coney Island Ave., police sources said. She ordered a bagel with cream cheese and a cup of hot chocolate, and left after what seemed to be a unremarkable transaction.
But Aly would soon be back. About two minutes later, she stormed into the store and started raging at the clerk. In an obscenity-filled tirade, she complained that her chocolate drink was not topped with whipped cream.
Rajaddaev, 22, said she had not actually asked for whipped cream. Hungry for a helping of cream, the 5-foot-9, 160-pound woman only grew more furious at the clerk’s explanation.
Rajaddaev told her that the store was out of whipped cream. All hell broke loose. Aly allegedly went behind the counter and got in Rajaddaev’s face. He told her to leave, and she allegedly threw her still-hot cocoa at the worker, scalding his face, neck and hands.
Another worker called 911, while Rajaddaev locked the doors to prevent Aly from escaping. Boiling with rage, Aly scratched the worker’s burned face, sources said. Then, according to sources, she ripped the door off a freezer and hit him in the head with it.
Soon cops came and cuffed the alleged cocoa kook. She is free on bail while facing charges of assault, menacing, criminal mischief and harassment. She had been arrested weeks before for criminal possession of a controlled substance. Rajaddaev refused medical treatment for his injuries, which were described as not serious.
Yesterday, co-workers defended his drink making. “We only give people whipped cream if they ask for it,” said Nurhan Aksoy, 32. “Sometimes customers get angry.”
