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.
We’ve reached out to the NYPD and Sarabeth’s (it’s open) for more details.
Another idiot who hasn’t heard security cameras, and of course doesn’t realize that the cheap/inexpensive ones have vastly improved over the last 5 years.
Was the iPad locked?
