Police Seek Man for Smashing Bakery Door

A man is wanted for criminal mischief after smashing the door of an Upper East Side bakery last month.

The incident took place at about 7:50 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 17, when the “unknown individual was making it difficult for customers to enter and leave the bakery located at 1280 Lexington Avenue.”

That bakery is Ole & Steen, which opened at the East 87th Street space (which had previously housed a Starbucks) in September 2023.

When staff members asked him to leave, he “…became irate and kicked the glass door at [the] location, causing it to crack. The individual fled southbound on Lexington Avenue. There are no arrests and the investigation remains ongoing.”

We’ve reached out to the bakery for comment.
