“As some of you may have known, our Chinatown boutique was attacked at 3:34am on Sunday,” the bakery said in a recent Instagram post. “It wasn’t a random attack, the suspect came fully prepared and splashed the shopfront with black paint.”
A screenshot of CCTV footage was also shared on the bakery’s Instagram account. The image shows the perpetrator carrying a paint bucket while wearing a face mask.
The bakery is offering 2,000 pounds ($2,821.39) to anyone who discloses information that may be valuable to local law enforcement.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community. Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone's support. We love you all and can't appreciate you guys enough.
