COLD CUTS: Diner where nut hid in freezer with knife A “DE­RANGED” man wreaked havoc when he jumped out of a restau­rant freezer and tried to at­tack em­ploy­ees with a knife shout­ing “Away, Satan! Away’!”

Carl­ton Henderson, 54, shocked em­ploy­ees and charged at them af­ter he some­how sneaked into the walk-in freezer.

He was wres­tled to the floor, where he lost con­scious­nesses and then suf­fered a heart at­tack.

Po­lice said the man suf­fered a med­i­cal emer­gency, later con­firmed to be car­diac ar­rest, and he was rushed to hos­pi­tal, where Henderson was later pro­nounced dead.

It emerged that he had only re­cently been re­leased from a jail.

Po­lice said he had “made state­ments that were con­sis­tent with him be­ing men­tally un­sta­ble”. old An­to­nio Dos Reis. He was re­leased from jail last Wed­nes­day when a judge threw out key ev­i­dence in the pend­ing case and or­dered that he be re­leased.

Judge Janet San­ders said Henderson’s 1993 state­ments couldn’t be used against him.

A wit­ness to the restau­rant episode said: “I’m gonna be a darn sight more care­ful open­ing my freezer from now on. Ain’t no crazy gonna get the jump on me, no way.”
