East Harlem, Manhattan (WABC) – Police have identified a suspect stabbed at McDonald’s in East Harlem, injuring worker.

Police have released a video, which they say shows 28-year-old Ezekiel Dunn running down East 117th Street from a restaurant.

Police say Dunn began harassing and arguing with restaurant staff on 3rd Avenue and 117th East Street around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Supposedly he had trouble ordering food at the kiosk and he walked over to the counter to talk to the female manager when they started arguing.

The 31-year-old victim, who works in the kitchen, came out with a broom handle or stick in his hand to protect the staff, and received several stab wounds, including three times in the back, once in the arm and two in the left temple with a box.

He was immediately taken to Harlem Hospital and was being treated for injuries including lung collapse, but it appears he will survive.

This incident was the second attack on a fast food worker this year. In January, an employee of Burger King The Byron-Nives crystal was killed just around the corner.
