A man reportedly shocked customers at a Jamaica McDonald's when he walked into the fast food restaurant with a knife in his back.


A stabbing victim walked into a Jamaica McDonald’s Tuesday morning with the weapon still in his back, according to published reports.

The 53-year-old man was crossing Sutphin Boulevard, about a couple of blocks from the fast food joint at 91st Avenue around 9:45 a.m. when he was stabbed, police said.

Shocked witnesses reported seeing the man come into the McDonald’s with the knife sticking out of his back and speaking on his cell phone, reports said.

“I’m pretty sure he was on the phone talking to somebody in his family or a loved one or something, he was talking to them and telling them it might be the last time he’s speaking to them,” witness Tromaine Yancey told CBS 2.

“He was cool and calm. But you could tell he was shaken up,” Michel Green, told the New York Post. “I went to pull the knife out, but someone said, ‘No, no! It might have hit an artery!’ ”

The victim was taken to Jamaica Hospital where he was treated and later released the same day, cops said.

There are no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
