Qdoba employee stabs fellow staffer at Lone Tree restaurant

Customers at a Qdoba in Lone Tree got a lot more for their money than a fast-casual burrito last night.

That's because one employee of restaurant, located in one of the many Park Meadows shopping areas (not far from a Barnes & Noble and a Mattress King) stabbed a co-worker.

The former is in custody; the latter was rushed to an area hospital.

Here are the details that have been released thus far.

At about 8 p.m. last night, according to the City of Lone Tree, officers responded to the Qdoba at 8441 South Yosemite Street, an area captured in the following interactive graphic. If you have problems seeing the image, click "View Larger Map."

The report: a stabbing.

On the scene, the cops nabbed a 22-year-old male employee of the eatery. According to a video shot by the Denver Post's Karl Gehring, they were assisted in their efforts by a customer who kept track of the fleeing suspect and pointed the police in his direction.

The victim, a 24-year-old man, also works at the Qdoba. He was reportedly stabbed multiple times. His current condition is unknown.

The Lone Tree cops have not released any names in the incident to date. However, city spokeswoman Kristen Knoll says investigators believe no one else was involved.

Charges are pending.

Here's a Denver Post video in which Knoll outlines what happened.
