ROCHESTER — Police charged a local man recently after he allegedly attacked his manager at Friendly’s with an 80-ounce caramel Heath bar ice cream cake.
Adam Porter, 30, of 42 North Main St. Apt. 4, pleaded not guilty in District Court Monday to allegations of misdemeanor simple assault and criminal mischief.
Police Capt. Paul Callaghan said Porter was an employee at the South Main Street Friendly’s who gave his two-week notice late last year. His last day was Jan. 10, and at 7:30 p.m., he encountered his manager a final time.
Callaghan said the manager went to pick up a ringing phone, no one was on the other line, and when he turned around he unexpectedly found himself face-to-face with an “80-ounce sheet of cake.”
Porter allegedly threw the $22 frozen cake into his boss’s face, resulting in a bloody nose, Callaghan said.
Following a police investigation, Porter was charged on Jan. 31 with assaulting his manager. He remains free on $1,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled for trial on April 21. He is to have no entry into Friendly’s.
