A burn victim raced into a local 7-Eleven and began drenching his clothes and body with Slurpees Tuesday afternoon in southern Oregon.

The Wallowa County Chieftain reported the next day that it began like any other Tuesday in the town of Grants Pass, when employee Charlie Bentley and a co-worker saw a tattooed man run into the store followed by two assailants.

Bentley said the man, whose identity has not been disclosed, "got Slurpee everywhere" while filling his shirt with frosty Hawaiian Punch. While the man lathered himself, Bentley and his coworkers kept the assailants at bay in an effort to calm the situation.

The police eventually arrived, and the scalded man was taken to Providence Medford Medical Center for treatment of minor burns.

"I didn't actually realize he was injured until police sat him down," said Bentley, admitting he was initially unaware of the man's motivation for such enthusiasm in regard to the delicious iced treats.

"The call came in as a disturbance as well, where somebody was inside covering himself with Slurpees," said Grants Pass police Lt. Todd Moran. "We determined that there had been a neighbor dispute which culminated in at least two people being burned with hot oil."

According to The Associated Press, the scuffle originated just a few blocks away as a dispute between neighbors, and one other woman was also burned and taken in for treatment. Initial calls about the disturbance also said something about a man being chased with a baseball bat.

As of Wednesday, no arrests had been made in response to the incident, and police said the investigation was ongoing. The substance that produced the burn was not reported.
