Man with knife in chest calls 911, then orders coffee
Dec 23 2009
WARREN, Mich.— A man who walked into a Michigan diner with a 5-inch knife stuck in his chest ordered a coffee and complained only about the cold weather.
The 52-year-old man, who has not been identified, called a 911 operator in Warren on Sunday night to ask that an ambulance be sent to Bray's, an eatery in neighboring Hazel Park.
He said he had been stabbed during an attempted robbery half a mile away, then walked to the restaurant and called 911 from a pay phone.
On a recording of the call, the man gives a vague description of his attacker before saying, "I'm gonna sit down at Bray's 'cause they got a chair and it's cold out here."
Restaurant employee George Mirdita tells The Detroit News the man calmly ordered coffee.
Police said Tuesday that the man is recovering.
