East Austin cafe Sa-Tén Coffee & Eats is seeking help from the public in identifying the perpetrator of vandalism to its Airport Boulevard location on Memorial Day.
According to a post on the restaurant's Facebook page, a man "acting strange and asking unusual, specific questions" visited the cafe on Monday. Director of Operations Elizabeth Hyman told Austin Culture Map that security camera footage captured the same man returning that evening after hours, walking toward the breaker box.
"He returned after we closed to to vandalize the front of the building as well as sabotage our breaker box, causing power to shut down at the shop and for us to lose all of our product including milk and food," the Facebook post reads.
Store management asks that anyone with information about the incident email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call APD and reference case no. 19-5021680.
According to Culture Map Austin, the suspect is about 5'10" and mid-50s, with a prominent belly. Photos of the man are included in the Facebook post below.
