Domino's Pizza delivery man wearing Motorcycle Helmet 'headbutted customer who complained over missing toppings'
Pizza lover Paul Williams claimed he was headbutted by a violent Domino's delivery driver wearing a motorcycle helmet after an order had been placed from one of the chain's branches in Exeter, Devon.
According to Mr. Williams' family, the worker - thought to be a manager at the restaurant- then barged into the home and tried to 'strangle' him before stamping on his head.
Armed police swooped on the property and the driver allegedly began to shoot at police with an air rifle before he was arrested.
Posting a photo of his bruised head on Domino's Pizza's Facebook page, Mr. Williams said: 'Thank you Domino's for the personal attention of your manager last night.
'You do not expect your managers to come to your house and beat you wearing a motorcycle helmet and full motorcycle gear if you complain of missing toppings.
'Franchise holders representatives attitude was I cannot give you any details as I have customers.
'Manager is in police custody after armed police called as he was shooting at officers.'
It is not yet clear if Mr. Williams picked up his pizza from the shop or if it was delivered, or how he made the complaint, but he claims it was followed up by a visit from the store's manager on Friday night.
It is understood the man arrived on a motorbike and allegedly attacked Mr. Williams in the home while his son was inside.
His shocked mother Gaenor Williams said the man was firing at police with an air rifle following the attack.
Writing on Facebook, she said: 'He is a danger to the community.
'My son was beaten up by this lunatic and his girlfriend was scared to death by this idiot entering her home to commit such an act of violence.
'He was shooting at the police with an air rifle.
'The police took it away with them.
'My son and grandson were in danger.
'He headbutted my son with his motorbike helmet on and then tried to strangle my son and stamped on his hand with his motorbike boot leaving his hand in a hell of a state.'
However, Mr, Williams said the incident was 'in the hands of the police'.
He said: 'I am not making any comment. It's in the hands of the police - that's all.
'I don't want to gossip.'
Meanwhile, his sister Gail Williams said the family had been asked by the police not to discuss the attack.
She added: 'My brother is the one who has been left with his face re-arranged.'
Domino's Pizza says it will 'co-operate fully' with the police investigation.
A spokesperson said: 'As this is now a current police investigation there is very little we can say on the matter.
'However, please be rest assured we are taking this incident extremely seriously and will be providing the police with our full co-operation.'
