I checked in with the NYPD today to see if they’d figured out who had gone all High Noon at the Upper West Side Apple Store over the weekend, and a detective there emailed to tell me that the store appears to have been attacked, but not by a gun.
“A complaint was reported of criminal mischief to a front glass window at the location. The window was broken with an unknown object, as per witnesses. No shots were fired , no arrest.”
How anticlimactic. But here’s another question: if something other than a gun can break the store’s glass, does Apple need to invest in an additional super-strong layer of protection?
Meanwhile, the store placed sticky tape on the windows where the glass had cracked to keep the unsightly damage from offending the eyes of consumers, Racked reported.
