An employee of Chillicothe McDonald’s was treated and released from Hedrick Medical Center following an incident Sunday at the restaurant.

Reports indicate CJ Myrick whom police identified as a manager for the business, was stabbed or cut around the neck and back.

The suspect, identified as another employee of the store, is Nathan Caleb Osborne.  Online court information shows charges were filed today against Osborne accusing him of assault in the first degree causing serious physical injury to another person as well as armed criminal action. Judge James Valbracht set Osborne’s bond at $250,000 cash and ordered Osborne to have no contact with Chance Jordan Myrick and to not be on the premises of Chillicothe McDonald’s.

About 12 Noon Sunday, Chillicothe police received a report of an assault with a weapon at the Chillicothe store and the dispatcher was advised that the assault was initiated by an employee with a knife who attacked the victim then fled the store.

Police captured the suspect who allegedly was attempting to hide in the woods west of the store. The suspect was then taken into custody, processed at the Chillicothe police department and transferred to the Daviess-Dekalb Regional Jail.

The Chillicothe McDonald’s restaurant was temporarily closed for the afternoon as the investigation took place and statements were taken from employees and witnesses.
