A quick bite to eat turned into an assault and robbery when two men got into an argument at a Flushing McDonald’s earlier this month, authorities said.
The 24-year-old victim and the suspect were inside the fast food joint on Main Street near Roosevelt Avenue at about 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 4 when they started arguing, police said. The situation escalated and the suspect assaulted the victim and stole his cellphone before fleeing.
The victim was left with bumps and bruises to his face. He refused medical attention at the scene.
Police describe the suspect as a 25-year-old Hispanic man, 5 feet 6 inches tall and 170 pounds.
