Man with knife in chest walked a mile to restaurant and ordered coffee
OK, this may not be techically stupid, but it's certainly weird.
Diners at a restaurant in Warren, Michigan got some strange entertainment with their meals on Sunday when a man walked in with a 5-inch knife stuck in his chest.
Police said that the man called 911 at about 10 p.m., saying he had been attacked in Warren but had just walked a mile to the Bray’s Hamburgers in Hazel Park.
Restaurant employee George Mirdita said the man walked in, ordered a coffee and said he was waiting for an ambulance to come. “It was like out of a movie,” Mirdita said. “It kind of freaked us all out here. Then, the customers realized it and they were all turning their heads in disgust.”
Police said the man told them he had been walking when another man approached him and demanded cash. The victim told police that he was stabbed when he refused to hand over any cash. The knife was shoved into the left side of his chest all the way to the handle.
Police said the man tried to get help at a nearby apartment complex, but when he couldn't get help, he called 911 from a pay phone.
“Yes ma’am, could uh … is it possible to send an ambulance here?” the man is heard saying to a 911 operator. “There’s a knife stuck in my chest.”
The man then told the operator that he thinks it’s a steak knife.
Mirdita said tha tthe man was calm and did not complain of being in pain. “he was mingling with the guy next to him,” he said.
The vistim was treated and is expected to be fine. (info from ClickOnDetroit)
