    “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.
