NY woman resorts to baseball bat after patty not available

February 09, 2019 - 1:54 PM

NEW YORK - A woman who couldn't get a beef patty at a favourite New York eatery used a baseball bat in protest.

On Saturday, police released surveillance video of the woman in action in the Bronx — smashing a restaurant's windows after learning the eatery had run out of her favourite food.

Police say the woman at the Back Home restaurant in the Morrisania neighbourhood came in on the afternoon of Jan. 15 and ordered a patty. She was told they'd run out, and she got upset.

Authorities say she left and came back to the Jamaican restaurant with the bat. The video shows a woman bashing in two windows.

She fled and police were still searching for her on Saturday.

The video shows a woman dressed in a black and white jacket and matching sneakers, swinging a multi-colored aluminum bat as bystanders tried to stop her before she walked away.

No one was injured during the incident.

The Back Home restaurant in the Morrisania neighbourhood is a simple, affordable spot that offers Jamaican specialties like curry goat and oxtail, drawing people from around the city.
