A missed kick during a fight on the sidewalk outside La Pita Fresh on East Liberty Street in Ann Arbor Saturday night resulted in up to $3,000 in damage, the store’s owner said Monday.
Owner Kasey Chammout said a witness, who happened to be a customer on Monday, told him that two people were fighting outside the store on Saturday night. One of the combatants attempted to kick the other, missed, and hit the window instead, he said.
The store has filed a police report and the area has been boarded up for the time being. Chammout said a company is coming in on Tuesday to take measurements for a replacement pane of glass.
He said he’s not sure who the people who were fighting are. They ran away from the store, at 529 E. Liberty St., immediately after the incident, the witness said.
The broken window had printing on it with the store’s name and neon lights behind it, Chammout said. Replacing the windowpane along with all of the printing and the neon lights will cost somewhere between $2,500 and $3,000, he said.
The Ann Arbor Police Department is investigating the incident, Chammout said.
