A man was arrested Friday after he reportedly threw a glass candle holder at a waitress in a Mission restaurant, police said Monday.

Juan Antonio Valdivia-Pedroza, 22, of San Francisco was booked on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon.

The man was reportedly leaving the restaurant in the 400 block of Valencia Street about 10:44 p.m. when he threw the candle holder at the 30-year-old woman’s face, police said.

The waitress sustained a cut over her eye.

Witnesses flagged down police and the suspect was arrested.
