A popular fast-food chain has come under siege in Broome with local Domino’s staff threatened and attacked in two separate incidents over two weeks in May this year. Revealed in Broome Magistrate’s Court on June 19, the attacks resulted from two separate incidents involving three perpetrators. The first incident occurred at 11pm on May 14, where Broome man Joseph Golova caused damage to the Domino’s property after staff refused to give him free food. The defence alleges Golova was told called a racial slur when he asked staff for food which caused him to lash out. Golova demanded garlic bread as he banged on the doors of the Domino’s before he took a cigarette lighter and attempted to light fire to one of the delivery mopeds parked outside. When the moped seat failed to catch fire, Golova then lit fire to a piece of paper and put it near the moped’s exhaust. When police arrived Golova said, “They didn’t give me garlic bread and it was only a small fire”. Golova was found guilty of one charge of criminal damage and was ordered to pay $750 in fines and $137 in court costs. The second incident occurred only less than two weeks later on May 25 at 9pm when Remiguezs Rogers and Jessica Gordon entered Domino’s and ordered two pizzas. While they waited for their order the couple attempted to steal a bottle of soft drink from the venue when the manager caught them. The manager refunded the couple’s money and informed them they would no longer be served before asking them to leave the store. “I’ll bash you if you don’t,” one of the accused said in response before both launched into a tirade, throwing money, a soft-drink bottle and two computer screens at Domino’s staff. Ms Gordon then followed staff behind the counter and threatened to club them with a wine bottle in her possession. The couple was later apprehended by police. Ms Gordon was found guilty on several charges and ordered to pay $1700 in fines and $137 in court costs while Mr Rogers case was adjourned for four weeks.
