A New Yorker has stunned hungry customers after he walked into a McDonald’s with a knife stuck out of his back.
The 50-year-old victim got into a fight with two other men at around 10am on Sutphin Boulevard near 91st Street in Jamaica, New York, according to reports in CBS.
The victim was stabbed in the back, but managed to walk down the block and into the restaurant, witnesses said.
“I heard everybody screaming and it was a lot of commotion,” witness Tromaine Yancey told CBS.
“The guy came and he was standing there with a knife in his back and it was a kitchen knife.”

According to police, witnesses saw several men fighting on the street corner, minutes before the stabbing.
“He was on the phone, 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,” Yancey said.
Horrified customers ditched their food to help make sure the victim didn’t fall onto his back until emergency services arrived.
The victim was rushed to Jamaica Hospital in serious condition, according to reports.
Police are looking to speak with two people they believe were arguing with the victim before he stumbled into the McDonald’s with blood pouring out of his back.
