Incensed that a St. Louis hamburger joint had run out of chocolate ice cream, a female suspect went on a 2:25 AM rampage, breaking out the restaurant’s windows with a baseball bat and spitting on employees, according to police.
Officials are seeking the public’s help in identifying the woman who trashed the Rally’s Hamburgers outlet on March 27.
According to a St. Louis police summary, investigators classified the incident as a burglary and listed three women as victims. The suspect, cops say, became “enraged after ordering her food” and “then used an aluminum baseball bat to break the glass windows of the business” and threaten the victims (none of whom were injured).
Investigators say the woman went ballistic after Rally’s workers informed her they only had vanilla ice cream available. Upon learning that there was no chocolate ice cream in stock, she spit on employees and then set upon the business’s windows with a baseball bat
It is unclear whether the woman entered Rally’s with a baseball bat or retrieved it from her car upon learning that no chocolate ice cream would be forthcoming.
The suspect fled in a gray SUV before police responded to 911 calls from the restaurant (seen above).
Police described the suspect as a black woman between the ages of 25 and 35. She was wearing blue jeans, a green jacket, and a yellow shirt during the attack.
