The NYPD is on the lookout for a Crown Heights man who pulled out a stun gun at a Kennedy Fried Chicken location last Friday. The man got into an argument with an employee of the fast food joint over change from a purchase and attempted to fire the gun at the worker.
The suspect walked into Kennedy Fried Chicken at 263 Schenectady Ave. near Lincoln Place in Crown Heights around 2:45 p.m. Friday, police said.
Soon afterward, in a dispute over change, he tried to fire the gun over the counter of the eatery, the police department said, then fled on foot southbound on Schenectady Avenue.
No one was injured during the incident, police said.
The NYPD released an image of the suspect on Monday, showing a young man in a tank top behind safety glass. Police did not provide an estimate for the suspect’s age, saying only that he was last seen wearing the tank top, white pants and black shoes.
Excuse us for saying this but no fried chicken is worth an assault charge, wouldn’t you agree?
