A warrant states two customers left the business “for a short time,” while their clothes were washing.

When the couple returned, police said they found 30-year-old Mi Hwan Kim had removed their clothes from the washing machine and placed them in a basket.

The couple argued with Kim, who claimed they pushed him, so he went to the back room and grabbed a rifle, according to a police report.

The warrant alleges Kim pointed the rifle at the two customers and their eight-year-old daughter, while threatening to kill them.

Police said the couple grabbed their daughter and ran from the business, then called 911.
