LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - A dispute between a customer and the employee of a local business escalates to assault charges and an arrest.

It happened on Monday at a metal supplier company in the 3200 block of Willow Street.

According to reports, the victim was coming back from his lunch break when he was approached by a man asking about an order.

The victim says that person became upset when asked to show a receipt and they eventually began shouting at each other.

The customer then went into the office to speak with a manger and that’s when his son, 23-year-old Cody Lee Canales came up and allegedly punched the victim in the face.

Police arrived and arrested Canales on assault charges.
