NYPD Officer Injured By Razor Blade In Cheesesteak From Restaurant

Sandy Malone

NYPD said a plain clothes officer sustained an injury to his mouth after biting into a sandwich that had a razor blade.

Queen, NY – An on-duty, plain clothes New York Police Department (NYPD) officer bit into a cheesesteak and cut his mouth on a razor blade on Thursday.

The incident occurred at about 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 5 when the officer stopped at the Bon Appetit restaurant located on Beach Avenue in Rockaway Park, WABC reported.

NYPD Detective Sophia Mason told Blue Lives Matter that the officer bit into a cheesesteak he had purchased and “felt a hard metal object in his mouth.”

Det. Mason said the officer pulled out a razor blade that had been in the sandwich.

She said the officer was treated for an injury to his mouth at a local hospital and released.

“We are investigating to see how it happened,” Det. Mason told Blue Lives Matter.

She reiterated that the officer was working in plain clothes and was not uniform but said police aren’t sure whether restaurant employees were aware he was in law enforcement.

The officer, who is a member of NYPD’s Critical Response Command, was driving a marked police vehicle when he arrived at the restaurant, the New York Daily News reported.

Newly-installed New York Police Commissioner Dermot Shea posted a photo of the razor blade to his official Twitter.

“To repeat: The NYPD has ZERO tolerance for acts of violence against our police officers. A sandwich bought at a Queens deli on Thurs. contained a razor blade that cut the inside of a @NYPDCT cop’s mouth. He’ll be OK, but a full investigation into this abhorrent act is underway,” Commissioner Shea tweeted.

In this case, it really doesn't matter if it was a Leo or a civilian! The joint should be shut down permanently!!!

Whoever did this needs to be not only charged with assault and battery . . .but publicly shamed in a pillary . . So onlookers with similar ideas get the warning and message . .public shaming us way better than just incarceration . . History proves that . . .

Fire every one of them. Maybe someone will turn them in, hopefully. I keep wondering why LEO's keep going into restaurants. Either in a marked vehicle or in uniform, they're subject to additives to whatever they order. I'm sure Bon Appetit has cameras......time for another boycott and name recognition on the 10 pm news !!

Scumbag pieces of crap need to pay for what they did, there could’ve been serious injuries. Fire and jail all the employees. Have health services come in, I’m sure they can find violations, a couple cockroaches should do the trick!

He pulled up in a marked unit. They knew he was a cop. I worked plain clothes years ago and unless you're totally undercover people know who you are. The bulge of the firearm and your badge on your belt or around your neck is hard to miss. This was done out of pure hatred

First, every one of those inwards working in that restaurant have been running lookout for their older siblings since they could walk. They know who the cops are and can spot us a mile down the street. Don't pretend like they didn't know who they cut. The problem is that the punishment never fits the crime. The monkey that did this will be back sitting on his porch tomorrow looking for another way to do harm to another cop.

He should sue the business, franchise owner, and person involved. Give him 10 minutes with the perp when caught. It would be a real shame if the place were to burn-down one night.

It never ends. Many years ago I went to Parents' Night at a local high school. A teacher spoke about so many parents showing up. We were all sitting at desks. I was wearing a suit and tie, not my uniform. The "GENTLEMAN" sitting in front of me was similarly attired. He didn't look like a person who would say something like this where all could hear. He looks at me (he must of spotted something under my suit coat) and said, "I keep seeing the 'PIG' here."

Another example of lack of respect for law enforcement. Let's just rub it in by claiming it could have been an accident. That could have killed the officer if he would have choked and swallowed it. I think this should be prosecuted as an attempted murder!

The left liberals push on anti-Cop agenda which is the cause of these criminal actions against our Nation's Police officers. From the liberals overreacting at traffic stops to the murdering of innocent Cops like the cold blooded murders of the 2 Officers in there squad car eating there lunch, the 2 eating there lunch in a restaurant near the window, the numerous 911 calls for help and the Officers responding ambushed at the door and the list goes on. Know attacking an Officer by putting a razor blade in his sandwich. All attacks on Law Enforcement should hold serious consequences for there actions. The murder of any Law Enforcement personnel shoud get the death penalty.

I want an arrest to take place and soon! And I want this POS to go away for decades. Anyone who can tamper with another person's food is complete sc^m!!! The level of evil it takes to do such a thing is absolutely no joke. A person who can do this can easily poison. Lock them up and throw away the key!!!
