Suspect in McDonald's stabbing is caught

SHANGHAI police said yesterday that they have caught the suspect in the deadly stabbing of a McDonald's employee in Xujiahui 10 days ago.

The man surnamed Yang, who fled the city after the attack, was caught at 2am in Taiyuan, Shanxi Province, on Sunday, Shanghai Public Security Bureau said. Yang was brought to the city under escort yesterday morning.

Yang allegedly stabbed 22-year-old Li Feng in the early morning of March 19 and fled the scene afterwards.

The police said they put Yang on the most-wanted list and worked nine consecutive round-the-clock days. They found the suspect's track on the public cameras around every position that Yang would possibly go.

The stabbing occurred about 4:30am March 19 as the 24-hour McDonald's on downtown Tianyaoqiao Road was starting to prepare breakfast. A conflict started when Li tried to stop Yang from sleeping in chairs, Li's colleagues said.

The quarrel escalated to physical contact with Yang splashed by a liquid, according to the police. Before anyone could stop the fight, Yang suddenly attacked Li with a fruit knife that he had brought with him.

Li, cut in the neck, shoulder and liver, was pronounced dead in the hospital.

Li's parents said he was a diligent boy who worked two jobs to support the family.

The McDonald's Shanghai branch said yesterday that they were negotiating with various social authorities of the compensation plan for Li, as he died while working.

Liu Xiaolin, a spokesman for the company, said they would prepare "a reasonable and fair plan" for Li's family.
