Footage from a bizarre attempted robbery of a Chipotle Mexican Grill in Massachusetts by a man armed with a hypodermic needle has now been released to the public by police.
The incident took place on Tuesday at around 5:30 pm when the culprit entered the Quincy restaurant and ordered food as normal. When presented with food, the man grabbed the bag, ordered the cashier to “put all the money in the bag,” and menacingly brandished a syringe while threatening to stab her.
Eventually, the store manager approached the register, prompting the deranged man to suddenly leave the restaurant without his food.
Responding officers attempted to track the man down using a police dog, but were unable to do so because of the heavy volume of other pedestrians in the area.
The man has been described as a dark-haired white man between the ages of 25 and 30, standing 5-foot-10 and weighing roughly 165 pounds. Anybody with information leading to his whereabouts has been encouraged to contact police.
