The documents did not identify the business.

Witnesses told police that Carrie A. Andonian, 43, hit the man in the upper back and he fell to the floor.

Andonian, an employee of the business who had dated her boss, argued with him earlier in the day, left the property and later returned with her three children, ages 6, 8 and 12, according to court documents.
