He was corralled in the nearby Panda Express lot by McDonalds, after Officers noticed a suspicious person matching his description there.


According to Pasco PD, the victims, whose names were not released, said Ponce was hassling them and trying to pick a fight with them inside Applebee's. The victim became so unsettled they just decided to leave and hoped it would end, but Ponce followed them into the parking lot.  One of the persons, a woman, was slashed but not seriously hurt.
