According to a criminal complaint filed against Tevita Sikaleti Fehoko, 30, a Target employee contacted police with a request to standby as they terminated an employee.

A fellow employee of Fehoko told police he made a comment about Fehoko driving the wrong way on an access road near the store, according to the complaint.

According to the report, the alleged victim stated Fehoko then grabbed him by the collar of his shirt and pushed him against merchandise shelves and said, “You’d better keep your mouth shut or I’ll kill you.” The man told police he heard Fehoko open a box cutter to expose the blade against his throat, the report states.

Supervisors were made aware of the alleged incident and damage to the complainant’s collar was noted, according to the complaint.
