NYC McDonald’s worker stabbing suspect turns himself in: police officers

The suspect in the brutal stabbing of a McDonald’s employee in East Harlem defending his colleagues turned himself in to the police, authorities said on Tuesday morning.

Ezekiel Dunn-Jennings, 28, who lives less than three blocks from the fast food joint where he allegedly stabbed 23-year-old Angel Miguel Salazar, turned himself in around 9 p.m. Monday in the 75th Precinct of Precinct Brooklyn and requested an attorney, police said.

He was charged with attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

Salazar intervened when he saw Dunn-Jennings arguing with other workers at the Third Avenue eatery near East 117th Street around 12:40 a.m. Wednesday, police officers said.

Dunn-Jennings had attempted to use a plastic cleaning pole to ward off the suspect and shield his two co-workers when he was mugged, store manager Jennifer Bisla Rodriguez said the post.

He was stabbed in the face, back and arm during the frantic attack – and had to be placed in a medically induced coma.

Salazar was pulled from the induced coma later that day but still could not fully use his left hand, his boss said.

“He’s a hero because not everyone would do that,” Rodriguez said. “Not everyone would see their colleagues in danger and fight back.”

Salazar’s older sister, Miguelina Salazar, said her traumatized brother did not want to speak to a reporter about the attack because he believed he was doing what any man would do.

“He said to me, ‘No, no, I’m not a hero. I did what I had to do. I defended my colleagues. Any man in this situation, a real man, would do that. “He’s very kind and humble,” Miguelina told the Post.

Dunn-Jennings has been arrested four times for assault, criminal mischief and threats, police officers said.
