An irate customer at an Outer Richmond taqueria is being sought by police in an aggravated assault that took place on Sunday, February 2 — during the Super Bowl.
The suspect stood at the counter of Gordo Taqueria at 5450 Geary Boulevard around 6:30 p.m. (the 49ers hadn't lost yet, so why so angry!?), and in surveillance video we can see the individual berating the cashier. The man was apparently there to order food, but was becoming "verbally abusive" while trying to do so — and was he maybe very intoxicated?
A man assembling burritos next to the cashier can be seen handing the angry dude a burrito, "in an attempt to diffuse the suspect’s agitation," according to the SFPD. But the man remained really angry about something, and hit the cashier with his cellphone, followed by the burrito, followed by a napkin dispenser and an electronic payment device — which he allegedly damaged.
The man is described as a Latin male, between 45 and 50 years old, 5’9”, 180 pounds, and he was wearing a 49ers t-shirt that said "BOSA" on it. He fled eastbound on Geary Boulevard, and was not apprehended.
The SFPD is seeking the public's help in finding the burrito thrower, and posted video of the incident to Twitter today.
Anyone with information about this individual is asked to reach investigators at the SFPD's Richmond District Station at 415-666-8083, or call Officer Sevilla at 415-666-8004. Tipsters may remain anonymous.
We do not yet have any updates on the suspect arrested in the shooting that happened at a SoMa bar on Super Bowl Sunday, in which thankfully no one was injured.
