(KOKH) - Police arrested an Oklahoma City man after he allegedly jumped behind the counter of a fast food restaurant and stole food.

The Oklahoma City Police Department reports that 36-year-old Dante Rashad Anderson was arrested April 15 on a complaint of robbery by force or fear.

Police say at approximately 10:45 a.m. they responded to the area of 9020 S. Western to a disturbance. Police spoke with employees of a Carl's Junior who said a man, later identified as Anderson, walked into their restaurant and began screaming and demanding food. Employees were able to get Anderson to leave and he walked across the street to Arby's.

The Arby's manager told police Anderson jumped on the front counter and demanded food. The man then jumped off the counter and allegedly grabbed the manager and forced her towards a wall. The manager told police the man then grabbed a hand full of bacon and chicken and walked out of the business.

On his way out, Anderson allegedly broke a glass door on the business. Oklahoma City Police Department MSgt. Gary Knight says Anderson was possibly under the influence.

"He was possibly under the influence of some sort of narcotic or intoxicant or suffering from some type of break with reality. He did mention that he is from four years in the future and that is how people will get food during that period of time," Knight said.

Police say as Anderson walked across the street he kicked and damaged several vehicles. Witnesses told police they saw the man eating bacon as he crossed the street. Patricia Beedle has her own business in Noble. She tells FOX 25 she was delivering t-shirts Friday when Anderson began allegedly kicking her car.

"He jumped up like he was Chuck Norris and just kicked the crap out of my car. I mean, he kicked it so hard you could just feel the momentum of him kicking it," Beedle said.

Beedle says you can still see the dent from where Anderson allegedly kicked her brand new car. Police were able to track down the man, later discovered to be Anderson, lying on the ground outside of Taco Mayo, 8800 S. Western.

Anderson allegedly told police his ankle was broken and that he is "four years advanced" and on his planet "everyone is dead".

Anderson was then taken into custody and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.Anderson faces complaints including robbery by force or fear, assault and battery and destruction of property.
