Kidnapped Woman Saved By Leaving Note in McDonald’s Bathroom

A man is facing kidnapping and rape charges after the woman he allegedly abducted tipped off investigators with a note scrawled in makeup on the bathroom wall of a McDonald’s in Dover, Del.

The note, which suggested its writer was being held against her will, was discovered shortly before noon Thursday at the McDonald’s at 879 N. DuPont Highway, the Dover Police Department said in a news release.

Detectives reviewed video surveillance footage from the restaurant and neighboring businesses.

Based on the clothing the suspect and victim were wearing on film, officers determined they were likely on foot and searched the area, police said.

About three hours later, investigators found the pair outside the Dover Mall.

Suspect Brandon Turner, 28, of Rock Hall, Md., was taken into custody without incident, police said.

A subsequent investigation revealed Turner kidnapped the victim, a 25-year-old woman who is his estranged wife, on Oct. 23 from the area of North Little Creek Road, police said.

He allegedly took her to a home on Long Point Road, duct-taped her to a bed and raped her multiple times.

Police said he held her against her will for a week, until his arrest Thursday.

Investigators said they also learned Turner was riding a green Kawasaki motorcycle that was reported stolen from the Delaware State Police Troop 9.

He is charged with 12 counts of second-degree rape, second-degree kidnapping, receiving stolen property, and breach of release for allegedly violating a no-contact order the victim had on file against him since Aug. 4.

Turner remains jailed at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $651,500 cash bond.

Dutch Trick Foodies Into Liking McDonald’s

Ronald goes undercover.

From huffingtonpost.com:

“McDonald’s demographic usually caters to college kids who don’t know any better and people who are on the go. But as it turns out — “foodies,” they’re “lovin'” McDonald’s too — they just don’t know it.

VIDEO: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4Qa6QXBxxWw
A Dutch prankster group called Lifehunters decided to go to an annual food convention and trick the snobbiest of foodies into liking McDonald’s, which they disguised as swanky samples of their “new, organic alternative to fast food.”

As the food experts throw around words like “fresh,” “delicious” and “rich,” we can’t help but giggle — especially when the participants explain why the food they’re sampling is better than McDonald’s. Oops.”

Russia Expands McDonald’s Investigation to 200 Outlets

Either Ronald McDonald needs to clean up his Russian locations or Putin is retaliating for economic sanctions.

“No more Nice Mr. Guy, McDonald…”

From Bloomberg.com:

“Russian consumer-safety regulators are conducting inspections at more than 200 McDonald’s Corp. (MCD) restaurants around the country.

Russian courts have temporarily closed nine restaurants, the Oak Brook, Illinois-based company said in a statement on its Russian corporate website. McDonald’s said it disagreed with the decisions and that it will appeal to a higher court.

McDonald’s arrived in Soviet-era Russia in 1990 and was seen as a symbol of the nation’s rising prospects, helping open the communist nation to foreign enterprise. While regulators have cited violations of sanitary rules by McDonald’s, the timing and scope of the shutdowns are seen as a response to Western sanctions in Russia.

The original restaurant in Moscow’s Pushkin square, which drew long lines when it first opened, is currently shut under the court order.

The U.S. and European Union imposed sanctions against Russian companies and officials after President Vladimir Putin annexed Crimea earlier this year, escalating the worst standoff between the two sides since the Cold War. In response to the sanctions, Putin banned $9.5 billion in food imports from Western countries.

McDonald’s has more than 35,600 restaurants worldwide, with 440 in Russia as of the end of August. The shares of the company rose 1.3 percent to $91.04 at the close in New York on Oct. 17.”

Attacker Who Stabbed Rangers Has History of Violent Attacks, Grabbed a Bite to Eat at McDonald’s

This guy basically sucks. Can’t really summarize it better than that.

From bostonherald.com:

“The 34-year-old homeless man accused of repeatedly stabbing two park rangers during a vicious daylight attack on Boston Common has a long history of violent assaults on family, friends and police, including pleas to cops to kill him similar to one he made after his run-in with the law Tuesday, records show.

Bodio Hutchinson’s mother called police in 2006 to report that her son was “breaking up everything” in her Dorchester home and had begun “putting metal household spray canisters in the microwave oven.” During a four-hour standoff with police, Hutchinson, armed with a knife, yelled, “Come on in and kill me, I don’t want to live anymore,” court records state. Four officers were injured in the arrest.

Hutchinson, who has been in and out of the Long Island homeless shelter, was held on $1 million bail after pleading not guilty yesterday to assault and attempted murder charges stemming from Tuesday’s attack that prosecutors said left both rangers with five stab wounds each.

The rangers, identified in court documents as Albert Hurd, 46, and James Lunnin, 25, were investigating a report of a man brandishing a knife when they questioned Hutchinson as he sat on a monument smoking a cigarette, according to prosecutors.

When Hutchinson lunged at the rangers with the knife, they pepper-sprayed him, but he kept coming. After calmly sitting on the monument after the attack, prosecutors say, Hutchinson strolled toward the Public Gardens, where police nabbed him after he tossed a 5-inch folding knife into the lagoon.

Just before he was cuffed, Hutchinson shouted at the cops, “Shoot me, shoot me!” prosecutors said.

Defense attorney Shannon Lopez said Hutchinson is a diagnosed “paranoid schizophrenic” who has long battled drug addiction.

Records show he also left a bloody trail of attacks on his loved ones, innocent bystanders and jail guards. Hutchinson’s uncle called police in 2008 after his nephew beat and stabbed him outside his Mattapan home, leaving “blood on the banisters, floorboards, and the couch on the front porch,” records show.

Two years later, his roommate of 10 years told police Hutchinson punched and kicked him before biting off part of his ear during a dispute over a female guest, according to court records.

While in Nashua Street jail on that bust, Hutchinson was accused of punching, kicking and biting corrections officers during a routine strip search.

Hutchinson was arrested again in 2013 after punching a woman at a McDonald’s in Newmarket Square, then beating and biting a man who tried to help her, police reported.”

Wife Goes to Work at McDonald’s, Husband Stays Home and Kills

This guy is weird.

Polyurethane…seriously?

From wcsh6.com:

“RUMFORD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — Officials released disturbing details at the court appearance of a accused of killing his mother-in-law Tuesday.

Paul Orchard appeared in court to face a murder charge in connection with the death of his 57-year-old mother-in-law Paula Nuttall in Peru. The medical examiner determined Nuttall died from cardiac arrest during strangulation and sexual assault.

When police were called to a home on Main Street in Peru Saturday morning, they said they found Orchard naked, on top of Nuttall. She was barely breathing. Police said Orchard was covered with Polyurethane, a clear wood coating, and they suspect that he may have consumed it. When police asked who the woman was, Orchard said, “I killed my wife”. Police later learned his wife was actually working at the local McDonald’s. In a phone conversation taped by police, Orchard told his mother “I was high, it was an accident. It was a vapor, I didn’t have a mask on. I was doin’ her floor.”

The judge also set special conditions to assure that Orchard does not have any contact with his 6-year old daughter, who investigators said witnessed the attack on her grandmother.”

Guy Throws Tantrum After Being Told He Can’t Use McDonald’s Phone

There’s no telling what the lady he assaulted earlier said to him. I wonder if they used the same phone they told him he couldn’t use to call the cops?

From actionnewsnow.com:

“A 41-year-old Chico man was arrested for vandalism after he ran into the McDonalds on Mangrove Avenue and began breaking property when his request to use a phone was denied.

According to the Chico Police Department, a 59-year-old woman reported that she had just been assaulted by an adult male, just before 11 a.m. Monday.

Police were able to identify the suspect as 41-year-old Christopher Leach, and made contact with him in the 600 block of Mangrove Avenue. When police approached Leach he fled into the McDonalds at 655 Mangrove and requested to use the business’ phone.

McDonald’s employees denied Leach access to the phone, at which time he became enraged and started breaking things in the restaurant.

Officers arrived a short time after Leach fled into the McDonalds and arrested him for felony vandalism.”

Woman Shoots at McDonald’s Over Forgotten Bacon

This actually happened…

From woodtv.com:

“GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – A woman accused of firing a gun early Monday morning at a McDonald’s restaurant – allegedly because she didn’t get bacon on her sandwich — now faces three criminal charges.
Shaneka Monique Torres, 29, was arraigned in Grand Rapids District Court Monday afternoon on charges of carrying a concealed weapon, discharge of a firearm in or at a building and felony firearms.

Torres and another woman placed an order at the drive-thru window at the business located near 28th Street and Madison Avenue SE on Sunday. The workers got the order wrong, police said, and the customers were told their next meal would be free.

So the women returned to the restaurant’s drive-thru window around 3 a.m. Monday and ordered again. Torres was the passenger in the vehicle, and was flirting with the employee in the first drive-thru window. police said. She left that person her phone number in hopes he would call her later.

Torres and the other woman drove up to the second drive-thru window to get their order, which was wrong, police said.

Torres pulled out a gun, reached across the driver and fired one shot through the closed car window and drive-thru window, police told 24 Hour News 8.

The bullet went through the other side of the building, but did not hit anybody. Workers didn’t realize what had happened. They thought a coffee pot had exploded.

The customers drove away and went to Torres’ house, where she was dropped off.

Police tracked down the shooter at her home because she left her cellphone number with the drive-thru worker.

Police arrested Torres at her home.
She is currently being held at the Kent County Correctional Facility on a $50,000 cash surety bond.

The driver of the car told 24 Hour News 8 Monday that she had no idea Torres had a gun. She also said she was having a difficult time hearing because her ears were ringing.”
