Bartender Stabbed Chasing a Man

November 28th, 2012 at 11:54 am

Bartender Stabbed Chasing a ManA bartender in the Magnificent Mile heard a chilling scream and saw a man run through the Westin Hotel and to the streets, and reacting on pure instinct, he ran after the man. The chase ended in the bartender getting knifed, but he survived the incident. The Chicago Tribune reported a story about the chase that took an ugly turn.

Bradford Burner, 35, who was tending the bar at Westin Hotel Grill when he heard the scream said it was ”bone-chilling.” Burner pursued the subject on the streets, closing in on the man near some shops at the Hancock building. He said the man displayed a knife when Burner got closer.

“Someone yelled something. The gentleman turned around (and) saw me coming toward him,” Burner told the Chicago Tribune.

The next thing Burner knew was that the man was coming at him with a knife. Burner was cut on his chest, and he fell to the sidewalk after getting knifed.

According to police and prosecutors, Jimmy Harris had tried to rob an Oak Brook doctor in the restaurant bathroom. Harris had stabbed and struck the doctor, Mir Jafar Shah, before fleeing. Harris, 56, is a parolee with 60 prior arrests, and he had just been released from prison eight days before the stabbing.

Harris is being held no charges of attempted murder, aggravated battery and unlawful restraint.

If you or a loved one are facing criminal charges, be sure to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney in Chicago as soon as possible. Criminal charges are always serious, and they can have life-altering consequences. Do not hesitate before contacting our Illinois law offices.
