Phantom Kidnapper

Police search for
Masked Caper
who attempted to
kidnap young girl

Suspect was "Dining in Disguise"
at Fuddruckers, home of the

World's Greatest Hamburger.

READING, Mass. -- Police are searching for a man who attempted to abduct a young child Saturday.

The incident took place in a Fuddruckers restaurant inside Jordan's Furniture.

The little girl was on her way to the bathroom when the suspect approached her and asked if she wanted some candy, and if so she should "head to Yummie's, route 1, Kittery Maine."

The child said no, and the suspect then grabbed her.

By the time the girl's father ran over, the attempted kidnapper had fled.

The suspect is described as a 45 year-old, 5-foot 10-inch, 275-pound white male, with nappy hair. He was wearing a Purple hat, a Milton's (the Store for Men) jacket, and jeans at the time of the incident.

Police have come up with this sketch of the suspect and are reviewing footage from a nearby film crew, that happened to catch the entire incident in high-def.

April 20th's PG highlighted some of the finest chain dining to ever be mass produced, processed and frozen - a la TGIF, Red Robin and Joe's American Bar. But since that fateful rerun, we have yet to see a victor in this tight race.

It's a head-to-head (fat head to greasy head) battle between Chain Restaurants and and Guilty Pleasures. This past weekend saw an episode titled "Fast Food Frenzy: Supersized Edition" as well as "Most Outrageous Desserts."

Is the Phantom effing with me? Are the Andelman's hip to the Blog?

Fast Food was knocked out of the competition in the first round, that was weeks ago. Why is it being rehashed now? "Outrageous Desserts" could be considered guilty pleasures - but it would be equally fair to count fast food joints as a "Chain Restaurants" episode. Tough call.

Touché, Phantom.
