MYFOXNY.COM - It's like a flash mob gone bad. Security footage from a Manhattan Dunkin' Donuts shows a group of youths climbing on counters, throwing chairs and throwing tables in a violent attack on workers.
It happened at the Dunkin' Donuts on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village. A $2,000 hot chocolate machine was reportedly destroyed in the attack.
Similar attacks have targeted other stores in the neighborhood in the previous weeks.
The video shows one of the teens throwing a chair and then running up to grab a donut.
A few of the attackers also grabbed drinks out of a refrigerator near the door, and they all quickly ran from the store.
Some businesses and even residents recently have complained about violence in the area. Most of the business owners didn't want to give their names for fear of retribution.
One store owner told Fox 5's Lisa Evers that some kids did something similar at his business about a week earlier than the incident at Dunkin' Donuts.
He said, "It's not safe around her."
The NYPD said it was examining the Dunkin' Donuts security footage but has not made any arrests.
In a statement to MyFoxNY.com, NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn's spokesperson, Jamie McShane says, "We will continue to work with the NYPD to make sure Christopher Street is a safe place especially as the weather gets nicer and more people flock to the area."
Won’t their fathers be disappointed when they see them on the news.
Only one word for Dunkin Donuts customers: Dunkin dumbasses
Wont their fathers be disappointed when they see them on the news.
The ones who actually know who their fathers are probably were driven there by them!
There was a similar style “mass robbery” at a convenience store in (IIRC) Las Vegas, recently. I guess this is becoming a more common thing?
“Hoping that police will come to their aid.”
Armed employees would solve this problem. Oh, that’s right, only criminals can carry guns in NYC...
How many of them are actually baby-daddys themselves.
The Amish strike again......
Amish getting restless again?
Perhaps the society is starting to collapse. This is the sort of symptom that would fit that scenario. The whole flash mobs thing is like that. The minority that thinks it is owed everything by the society is the folks that are involved and will continue that way until some of the other minorities, one of them, anyway, join in the fun.
And the Amish ‘hoodlums’ involved ran to their awaiting horse and buggies and sped off into the night with their plunder!
The Amish run on Dunkin
Somebody needs to get Rev. Al and Rev. Jesse involved. There must be some blatant racism by the owner’s of these businesses to create such an angry atmosphere!!
Are you speaking of all DD customers, or just those in the video? Just curious because I love me some DD coffee.
“He said, “It’s not safe around her.””
I should say not.
Seriously, if it ain’t safe around here, then either FIX IT or move. An unruly flash mob where I live would get their @$$es kicked in short order. Most likely, by our cops.
This cannot be!
Not it the Liberal Paradise of NYC!...................
The sad thing is, they are kids. As kids they can get away with anything. Because if you try to stop them and hurt them in the process, you can be charged with a crime. That’s a dirty shame. Course I doubt seriously there is much you can do when 20 or 30 teens come storming into your store. Now that these brats see they can get away with it, this will increase.
See, that would never happen at the locally owned Doughnut shop chain in my Southern Indiana city. There’s one right in the middle of the Hood, but the owners have let it be widely known that there’s a 12 guage under each cash register.
