NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- A Bronx grandmother is unable to walk following an assault at a McDonald’s last month, according to police.

Investigators are now searching for the suspect who attacked 86-year-old Gladys Marti, who suffered a fractured arm and hip when a man pushed her to the ground.

The incident happened at the McDonald’s located on 149th Street in the Melrose section of the borough on Thursday, Sept. 27th.

“He push me very hard and I fall down,” Marti told CBS2 News. “Throw me on the floor and then I can’t stand up.”

Marti said the suspect had been blocking the bathroom entrance and was upset when Marti tried to go in. No words were exchanged, just the shove.

Police are hoping to get the attacker off the streets. He is described as having gray hair and was last seen wearing white sneakers, a black and blue jacket and was pulling a blue, rolling suitcase.

The 86-year-old victim said she will most likely be in the hospital for at least another month while undergoing physical therapy.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
