Police: Woman Smashed Eatery’s Window for Running Out of Beef Patties

The New York Police Department (NYPD) released a video Saturday of a woman smashing a Bronx eatery’s window out of anger because the restaurant ran out of beef patties, police said.

The video, first captured on January 15, shows the woman taking out a large baseball bat before using it to smash the eatery’s window multiple times.

The woman allegedly became angry after an employee at the Back Home Restaurant on East 169th Street told her that the restaurant was out of the beef patties she requested, the New York Post reported.

Police say the woman then stormed out of the store, took out an aluminum bat, and smashed the Jamaican restaurant’s glass window and front door with it.

Authorities say she quickly fled the scene after the alleged act of vandalism.

Police say they are looking for the woman, who has long, black hair in a braid and a thin build.

The woman was last seen wearing a black hooded winter coat with white fur, black-and-white sneakers, and black leggings while carrying the aluminum baseball bat, authorities said.
