FILE - This Oct. 21, 2016, file photo shows a Burger King restaurant logo in Philadelphia. Burger King has delivered its own hot take on a regulatory showdown that has enflamed the U.S., with a flame-grilled Whopper. The new ad has become a sensation, with more than a million views and counting on YouTube. In the ad, customers are told they will be charged different prices for a Whopper, depending on how fast they want it.

Police here are investigating after a man with a knife threatened Burger King workers. 

The incident happened at the Burger King, 1401 N. Keowee Street, around 8:50 p.m. Saturday. 

Dayton police are investigating the aggravated menacing complaint after workers said a man in the drive-through window was waving a knife and yelling about chicken tenders.

The female worker told police a man was screaming at the intercom and she could not understand him. When he pulled up to the window, he screamed obscenities at the woman and was yelling about wanting chicken tenders. 

The worker shut the window to the drive-through and reported the behavior to her manager, whom called police.

The suspect told the two workers, “I will cut you,” before speeding off.

The case remains under investigation.
