Roly Poly Sandwiches employee threatens co-workers with knife, co-workers told police

An employee at Roly Poly Sandwiches hit a co-worker in the chin Thursday, stole money from the store’s tip jar and threatened employees with a butcher knife, his co-workers told police.

Ean Busby, 36, was arrested Thursday on preliminary charges of intimidation with a deadly weapon, battery and theft, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. David Alley said. 

Police arrived around 11:30 a.m. Thursday at Roly Poly Sandwiches on West Third Street, Alley said.

An employee told police Busby had recently broken up with his girlfriend, and a co-worker was trying to calm him down. Busby then became aggravated and told the other employee not to touch him. 

Police said Busby hit the employee who was trying to calm him down in the chin, threw down the knife and ran out the door. Busby later returned, stole about $10 from the tip jar and left again. 

Officers found Busby near Wheeler Mission Center for Men and arrested him, Alley said. He said Busby declined to give a statement to police.
