A 50-year-old man is facing charges after he grabbed a stranger's cake, and ate it too.
KELSO, WA - A 50-year-old man is facing charges after he grabbed a stranger's cake, and ate it too.
It all started when a Washington woman brought her child's birthday cake into a courthouse in Cowlitz County, thinking that would be safer than leaving it in the car with her dog. However, the cake may have been safer in the car because when the cake was inside the courthouse, a stranger grabbed and ate handfuls of the cake.
The chocolate cake passed through a metal detector and was sitting on a table when it was attacked.
Cake and frosting went flying when a Cowlitz County sheriff's deputy grabbed the cake molester and took him to the ground. When more deputies rushed to help Tuesday, only to end up smeared with frosting.
A deputy says 50-year-old Robert Fredrickson was arrested for investigation of third-degree theft. The man had been on his way to a court appearance.
Luckily, the woman didn't have to go home without a cake. A local grocery offered to replace the cake.
