Man Threatens 7-Eleven Worker with Dog, Police say

A Philadelphia man, who police said 'became upset' with a store employee at the 7-Eleven in Hatboro, returned with a large dog.

A Philadelphia man is behind bars after police said he used a large dog to threaten an employee of the 7-Eleven in Hatboro.

Upon responding to a disturbance at the 1 N. York Road convenience store on Jan. 26 at 10:43 p.m., police said Cavon A. Broaddus, 27, of Philadelphia, was arrested and charged with simple assault, possession of a controlled substance, false identification to law enforcement, false reports to law enforcement, and harassment.  

Police said that Broaddus became upset with a 7-Eleven employee over a matter and left. He then returned to the store with a large dog and threatened the employee, according to police. 

When officers arrived, police said Broaddus provided a false name and an inconsistent version of events. When he was arrested he was found to be in possession of heroin.

Broaddus was arraigned before District Justice Juanita Price of Abington and was incarcerated at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility when he failed to post the $10,000 cash bail.

I am not trying to justify what the scumbag with heroin did..... HOWEVER if it's the same 7-11 employee I'm thinking it is....He's a PUNK who talks crap to a lot of customers....and should get his ass handed to him....and that's why I refuse to even go in that store anymore.

I couldn't agree with you more Harley this guy is a scum bag. It is amazing how karma works. The guy arrested is a known herion dealer in Horsham. Who now lives in Philly. The Horsham police should look into home robberies that were done on the avenues in Horsham last summer. This guy should remain behind bars.

LMAO....Yes....Most likely Dave because he's an idiot who acts like a tough guy with everyone but deep down inside is a pansy ass.

Yes Sue I totally agree, Karma is a wonderful thing and apparently he almost got his, I don't think the dog had a chance to bite him....however the dog is probably better off not biting him because he looks as if he carries a few diseases himself. As for the heroin dealer yes they should check him out a little more and may find some more dirt on him.
