Man threatened 7-Eleven worker with broken wine bottle, police say


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police have arrested a man accused of threatening to kill a 7-Eleven worker while approaching him with a broken wine bottle shard. 

According to the arrest warrant, APD responded to a call on Feb. 21 at the 7-Eleven at 917 N. Lamar Blvd. They were told by the worker that Stanley Goodyear, 52, entered the store even though he was banned from the location following a trespass notice for theft in June 2018.

Goodyear reportedly exited after an exchange with the worker.

Several hours later, the victim said Goodyear returned to the store, broke two wine bottles on the floor and then left to harass a gas tanker driver at the gas pumps. 

According to the warrant, Goodyear then walked back into the store, picked up one of the shards of the broken wine bottles and approach the victim, reportedly saying “I’m going to kill you and send your body parts back to Vietnam.” The victim believes Goodyear would have cut him.

According to police, the entire incident was recorded on surveillance.

Goodyear is charged with a second degree aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge. His bond is set at $20,000 along with an order not to be within 200-yards of the 7-Eleven and not to contact any employees of the store.
