When Only One Of His Two Kids Came Out Of The Restroom, One Dad Experienced His Worst Nightmare…
Whenever we all leave our homes we all would like to come back to them and our families as well in pretty much the same condition as when we left them.
For many different reasons public restrooms are some of the most dangerous places that a person can go into.
Reason being is that there is so much relative privacy that a person can be attacked in a number of ways before anyone else really notices.
It’s why whenever my wife and family goes to a place that is a place that more than a certain number of people would have access to if at all possible we try to use the family restrooms whenever someone has to go because you can lock the door behind you and there’s generally only a couple of people allowed in there at a time.
Same thing with rest areas. I have been in rest areas at all times of the day or night and when traveling with family we will always have one person stand outside the door to the restroom and if something is up the person will yell at the top of their lungs.
Thankfully it hasn’t happened yet, but for one family it definitely has.
A Florida couple and their two sons went to grab a quick burger at a McDonald’s.
During their meal, the young boys employed the buddy system to use the restroom. Without indicating there was a problem, the older son returned to the table and the younger son did not, so the father went to investigate.
For most people, a trip to McDonald’s with your family is an enjoyable treat, but one father’s trip to a Jacksonville McDonald’s turned out to be a nightmare.
It was 5:30 p.m. on a Thursday when the family sat down to eat, and the brothers, ages 7 and 6, got up to use the nearby bathroom. A brief time later, the 7-year-old came back alone, causing the father to become concerned.
The dad walked into the restroom to look for his younger boy and saw a suspicious-looking black man wearing dark clothing emerge from a stall and leave the bathroom. Behind that same stall door, which the stranger had just exited, the horrified father found his little boy pulling up his pants, The Florida Times-Union reported.
After the family called the police to report the crime and seek their help, officers found Sykes hiding in a dumpster, which is where he belongs. Sykes is lucky that the victim’s dad didn’t find him before the police did, but the incident raises a lot of questions.
Originally, Sykes was arrested for possession of marijuana, but he was later charged with capital sexual battery after he was identified by several witnesses as the suspect in the McDonald’s bathroom attack.
