Staff at the Mi Ranchito on 119th Street told FOX 4's Dave D'Marko that they believe the suspect was a former employee's husband.

Antonio Bon Rios, 51, is charged with aggravated battery, two counts of aggravated assault, and one count of battery.

Staff said he ran through the restaurant, filled with about 100 people for Taco Tuesday, with a large knife, demanding to talk to the kitchen manager. Employees said he stabbed the kitchen manager and the manager's brother, a cook.

Police have not confirmed that a second person was stabbed but officers are still investigating.

Waitress Kate Lopez said she called 911 as she watched the man charge at other employees and customers before running from the building.

Witnesses said police were able to arrest the suspect at gunpoint in the parking lot.

Johnson County Med-Act said the victim is in stable condition at a local hospital.

Olathe Police are asking anyone with information about the incident to call the department at 913-971-7500 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
