There’s been another restaurant break-in on the Upper West Side.
According to a police report, an unknown individual “forced his way into” 423 Amsterdam Avenue between 80th and 81st Streets (where Sarabeth’s is located) at approximately 12:15 a.m. on Thursday.
Once in, the suspect removed an Apple iPad before fleeing north on Amsterdam Ave. by foot.
Police describe the suspect as “male, dark complexion, approximately 6’1′,’ heavy build, approximately 50-60 years old, last seen wearing a black coat, dark pants and black sneakers.”
In late January, seven Upper West Side restaurants were broken into on a single night, including nearby spots like Gazala’s, Billy’s Bakery and Blossom.
About a week later, police put out a call for help in locating a man who’d reportedly robbed St. Jame’s Gate and a local salon earlier in the month.
Anyone with relevant information about the suspect pictured above is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by sending a direct message to @NYPDTips on Twitter.
