Man accused of attacking Dunkin' Donuts cashier over order in Largo

LARGO — A man accused of attacking a Dunkin' Donuts cashier after an argument over extra bacon on his sandwich was arrested early Monday. Franklin A. Robleto, 25, stopped at a drive-through at 7030 Ulmerton Road about 11:30 p.m. Saturday and argued with the cashier over "chocolate in his coffee and extra bacon on his sandwich," an arrest affidavit says. Robleto got out of his car, approached the window and grabbed the cashier's arm. The cashier tossed a cup of coffee at Robleto. Before driving off, Robleto grabbed a glass tip jar and threw it at the cashier, according to the affidavit. Robleto, of Miami, faces a charge of burglary with assault. He was booked into the Pinellas County jail, where he remained Monday in lieu of $150,000 bail.
