Del Rey Oaks
A Monterey County Safeway worker suspended from his job after he defended a pregnant woman from an assault by her boyfriend has been reinstated with back pay after a huge outcry in the highly-publicized case.
Customers angered by Safeway’s actions on Sunday picketed the store in Del Rey Oaks where employee Ryan Young stepped between the couple on April 21.
Safeway’s suspension of a Monterey County employee after stopping a domestic assault has become a public relations headache for the grocery chain.
Safeway has suspended an employee at a Monterey County store, despite being called a hero by police for stopping a domestic assault in the store last month.
