MURFREESBORO, TN (WCMH) – A Texas woman called police after she felt she was sexually assaulted by a toy while eating at a hibachi restaurant.

It happened at the Wasabi Japanese Steakhouse outside of Nashville.

The toy in question is a plastic figure of a boy that squirts water when its toy pants are lowered. It’s used as part of the tableside cooking show that Hibachi restaurants are known for.

The owner of the restaurant admits that the other night, one of the chefs shot some water in the face of one of his customers.

“It peed on me, basically. Out of his…wee-wee area,” Isabelle Lassiter told WTVF. “It didn’t really have a wiener, but you got the point.”

Lassiter and her husband, James, were in town on a job from Sherman, Texas. They say they were mortified when the chef essentially made the toy urinate water on Isabelle. They were so upset, they called police.

“It was a sexual-style assault on my wife,” said James. “In front of our minor children and grandchildren.”

The officer that took the report found that the description wasn’t totally accurate. “I observed the toy to have no penis and just a hole for the water to shoot out.”

The restaurant’s management said chefs will now ask permission before spraying the guests.
