Glynn is charged with first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, criminal use of a firearm, and criminal possession of a firearm
A 30-year-old homeless man arrested for the cold-blooded killing of a 19-year-old Burger King cashier during a robbery has been released without bail for threatening another man with a screwdriver just over a month before the murder.
After an intense citywide manhunt following the murder of Kristal Bayron-Nieves at the East Harlem Burger King, where he previously worked, Winston Glynn was located in Brooklyn. Glynn went on to launch a tirade against the angry crowd, who berated him in English and Spanish as he was escorted out of the 25th Precinct precinct and booked on Friday January 14. “Why am I guilty?” Glynn screamed as officers escorted him to a police car. “You know they charge n****s every day? Where are our indemnities for four hundred years of bloody slavery.”

He screamed “f*** you all!” and then yelled, “America will BURN!” as detectives attempted to load the handcuffed suspect into the back of the car. Authorities struggled to shove him into the vehicle as they grabbed his shoulders and head. “You wanna start a war between latinos and n*****s?! Do you want to start a war?” he shouted. Glynn is charged with first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, criminal use of a firearm, and criminal possession of a firearm.
Glynn has an extensive criminal record, including at least four prior arrests. Most recently in November 2021 when he was charged with threatening with a weapon. At the time, Glynn was released from prison on his own accord because the offense he was charged with was an A-felony that “is not eligible for bail,” a spokesman for the Queens District Attorney told the Daily Mail.
According to court documents, Glynn threatened another man with a screwdriver during the November 30 incident at a homeless shelter where he was staying. At the time, he said to the alleged victim, “I’m going to stab you.” Glynn’s court date in the ominous case was scheduled for March 1.
However, Glynn’s list of alleged crimes dates back to 2017, when he was charged with criminal mischief for breaking the screen of a slot machine at Resort World Casino in Queens. In 2018, he was arrested for threatening a 45-year-old woman with a knife in Brooklyn, for which he was charged with criminal gun possession and threats.
In 2020, Glynn was arrested for allegedly assaulting a man in midtown Manhattan. He reportedly continued beating the man after allegedly punching the victim. He injured the man’s eye and knocked out a tooth. The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital. Police discovered a knife on Gynn after arresting him and charging him with criminal gun possession.
