A man violently broke into a Brooklyn CAVA restaurant Tuesday morning in order to stab his ex-girlfriend, police sources confirmed.
The NYPD is searching for Rakien Figueroa who they allege used a chair to smash his way into 345 Adams Street on Jan. 10 at approximately 7:50 a.m. Figueroa reportedly hurled a chair into the eatery’s front door, sending shards of glass flying.
Using his makeshift entrance, the suspect terrified employees before ruthlessly stabbing his 39-year-old ex multiple times. Figueroa then swiftly fled on foot.
The victim was rushed to a nearby hospital where she remains in stable condition. Figueroa is still at large and police are asking for the public’s assistance in apprehending the suspect.
