Two businesses on Avenue A between Ninth Street and 10th Street were burglarized last night.
The front door was smashed in at Village Square Pizza... not known at the moment what was taken...
A few storefronts away, Tompkins Finest Deli & Grill was damaged during last night's break-in...
An EVG reader sent this message just before midnight:
Called 911 23 minutes ago about a group of people breaking into bodega on Avenue A ... they still haven’t come. The looters filled up a car full of shit, threw the register into the street and bragged about where they are heading next.
And in a subsequent message: "No cops have come. And they’re long gone."
Given the timing of the break-in, this occurred roughly 30 minutes after the start of last night's 11 o'clock curfew.
These are the latest break-ins in the East Village. A group of seven men burglarized more than a dozen businesses late Sunday night.
