Homophobic Fatso Sought in West Village McDonald's Slicing
Cops are looking for a homophobic fatso who slashed a gay guy with a razor blade at a West Village McDonald's earlier this week. But that was only after making homophobic comments to the man.
The NYPD released photos of the 350-plus-pound man this morning. He's huge.
According to authorities, about 7 p.m. Wednesday, the plus-sized suspect and the victim got into an argument at a McDonald's on West 3rd Street that's notorious for violent brawls. The suspect made an anti-gay slur before getting into a scuffle. During the fight, the suspect slashed the man on the face, arm, back and neck with a razor blade. He then fled -- slowly, presumably.
The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he received stitches.
The scene of the crime has been the scene of several crimes as of late -- on St. Patrick's Day, a group of drunks brawled with another group of drunks. The fight was videotaped and posted on YouTube.
Prior to the St. Patrick's Day brawl, a manslaughter parolee beat two women with a metal rod at the same McDonald's. He was cleared of any charges after a Grand Jury determined he acted in self-defense.
Anyone with information about the fatso pictured above is asked to call police.
