Did Somebody Say McStabbin’?

Everything about this is odd.

You’ve got a guy complaining to a security guard about the quality of the service he received instead of to the people who provided the service. You have some random customer basically becoming a security guard so that he can protect the real security guard. You’ve got a fight that spills from the inside of the building to the outside. You’ve got a stabbing. And all of this because somebody went a little overboard with the McSugar spoon. Oh, and that somebody, who maybe you might want to argue started this whole thing by not knowing when to say when, managed to stay out of the ensuing madness entirely! Good for him, I suppose. Not involved in a stabbing is where I would want to end up, too.

The 57-year-old victim was eating at the McDonald’s on Eighth Ave. near W. 35th St. at 8:20 a.m. Tuesday when the suspect complained to a security guard that his coffee was too sweet, cops said.

When the diner came to the defense of the security guard, a brawl erupted between the two customers and spilled out onto the street outside, where the suspect pulled a blade and stabbed the victim in the chest, police said.

EMS took the victim to an area hospital where he was treated for a minor injury.
The suspected stabber, described as a bearded man with glasses carrying several tote bags, ran off and was still being sought Wednesday.
