(Scroll down for video) A restaurant employee was attacked with a snake after she refused to dice a customer’s onions, police in Canada said.

Saskatoon Police said that the incident unfolded after a dispute that erupted over chopped onions at Tim Hortons.

Two men, who were unhappy by the way they were served, threw the snake at the employee.

She fled in fear after the incident, which occurred on Monday around 7:30 a.m. at the Tim Hortons located in the 600 block of West 22nd Street.

The employee told police that the two men argued about their breakfast order, specifically they wanted their onions diced.

When the discussion became heated, one of the men reached into the pocket of the other, pulled the snake and threw it behind the counter.

No one was injured, police said. The officers quickly found the snake and determined that it was not poisonous.

Police found a temporary home for the snake, which has since been named Outlaw, until it can be released into the wild in the spring.

Doctors say outlaw was unhurt in the incident. The two men, both 20 years old, face charges of mischief and causing a disturbance.
