A customer, who has been charged for murdering a Queens Chinese food delivery guy, Zhiwen Yan, back in April over duck sauce, has been let out on bail. According to the New York Post, Glenn Hirsch’s brother posted his $500,000 cash bail and he is currently a free man as he awaits his trial.
Kenneth Holder, Queens Supreme Court Justice, warned Hirsch in court on Monday, advising him to follow strict guidelines following his release. This included wearing an ankle bracelet that prohibits him from going certain places.
“Anywhere you go that is outside your apartment is going to be restricted in terms of the time that you leave, the time that you remain out and the time that you return. You go outside of the area, the location, if you end up in Manhattan, other areas of Queens, if you end up in Brooklyn or anywhere except a direct route to where you’re supposed to go, the sheriff’s department will pick you up and bring you back before me and I will remand you. And no matter how much money you have, you will not be coming out of jail until this case is over,”
Kirsch isn’t allowed to go near the Great Wall restaurant, which is where Yan worked. He also isn’t allowed to go near Yan’s wife’s business, Lulu Laundry, the company is located close to the Great Wall.
According to South China Morning Post, before Hirsch fatally shot Yan, he tailed him and other employees from the restaurant for several weeks
“over his demand for duck sauce.”
The Queens District Attorney labeled his actions as an
“obsessive point of contention”.
