Food Delivery Driver Fought Back Man with Van Keys
On Saturday, around noon, the authorities were summoned to an Atlanta home by a 29-year-old food delivery driver who claimed to have been assaulted by a client during a drop.
The victim, Sonya King, told the authorities that her attacker, later identified as 54-year-old Rick Painter, ordered food via DoorDash and instructed the delivery person to leave the food on the kitchen’s counter.
King arrived at Painter’ home, entered the house via the front door and left the items on the counter, as instructed. While walking towards the door, King showed up and asked her to stay for another minute because he wanted to offer her a tip.
The woman said that the individual took out his wallet and began looking for a $5 bill when he told her that he’s actually Jesus Christ.
Fearing for her life, the food delivery driver moved slowly towards the door. That’s when the man grabbed her niqab (piece of clothing that covers the face).
During her fight with Painter, the man managed to grab her head. That’s when King poked Painter in the eye and used her car keys’ chain to punch him in the face. Before running away, King could distinctly hear Painter say “Aw, this feels so good.”
After escaping the house, King called the authorities. When the deputies arrived, Painter blocked the front door using a couch. He was later discovered naked in his bedroom, with his body covered in scars and bruises.
The man was taken into custody and charged with battery.
