A Utah restaurant worker was stabbed early Sunday because he refused to lend a pen to a man who wanted to get a girl’s phone number.

Kristopher Davis, 32, reportedly walked into Beto’s Mexican restaurant in Salt Lake City around 2:40 a.m. Sunday and asked an employee for a pen. When the worker didn’t immediately give him a pen, Davis allegedly slapped him in the face, KSTU reported.
