The Hamburglar is funny. The thugs who allegedly attacked a 45-year-old Indian American in a Jamaica McDonalds Restaurant were not funny. Neither is the response that this frightening incident has elicited form the McDonalds Corp. and from the 103rd Precinct.
Anil Srivastava said he was returning from a visit to his doctor when he decided to enter the McDonalds on Parsons Boulevard. Six teenagers blocked the entrance and demanded his cell phone. The thugs followed him into the store and then outside where they punched and kicked him so badly that he was hospitalized for a week. Srivastava required reconstructive surgery on his arm.
According to the victim, no one came to his aid. Not the manager. Not the stores security guard. Not the patrons. For reasons unknown, the stores security camera was disconnected and to this day, there have been no arrests
Although the manager admits the attack took place, the McDonalds Corp. declined to return phone calls from the TimesLedger. The police said the incident does not warrant media attention.
The thugs who did this should be arrested and thrown in jail. The people who were too busy eating or too cowardly to come to this mans aid should have trouble sleeping.
