He really flew off the handle!
Cops are looking for the man who busted into a fried-chicken joint and threatened to batter an employee with a broomstick.
The wing .nut got clerks at the cluck hut near Nostrand Avenue and Hillel Place to open the door to the closed restaurant a little after 1 am on Nov. 8, surveillance video shows.
But then he appears to get into an argument with the worker and pushes his way in, grabbing a nearby broom and brandishing it at the retreating fryer jockey.
The loony robber tossed over a trash can and eventually made off with a worker’s cellphone.
The suspect and victim did not know one another, and it is not clear what the thief was trying to accomplish, police said.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
