In all their years serving authentic Greek and middle eastern food at in Wichita Falls, first at Sikes Senter Mall then here on Kemp, Abdul and Nellie say they never imagined something like this happening. It all began Saturday morning before they had opened when a man came in asking for some water. After Abdul gave him some, he said the man asked to use the phone and left and went around the store when Abdul went out to check.
“He went around to the trash dumpster and he got something out, I guess a metal pole. It was like a metal pipe and next thing you know he knows he’s chasing him with it,” said Abdul.
Abdul said after the short chase out front, Abdul ran back into the store and locked the door, and that’s when he said the man went on a vandalism spree breaking all the windows in the front of the restaurant.
“Just one by one, glass was all over the counter almost to the other side to the bathroom,” Nellie said.
33-year old Donnie Lee Ross was later arrested at another store and booked into the Wichita County Jail on aggravated assault and criminal mischief charges with his bonds totaling 15-thousand dollars. The Razavi-Zadeh’s said they were simply trying to help someone that needed it.
“I’m nice to almost everyone, at least once I trust them. I would still trust the guy if he shows up and wants something,” said Abdul.
Abdul and Nellie plan have reopened and plan to have all the windows fixed soon.
