Police in South Carolina are said to be on the hunt for a man accused of walking around Greenville and smashing people in the face with plates full of whipped cream. The “crime” was certainly a random one, but authorities are still taking the assault very seriously, the New York Post reports.
- The assailant was caught on surveillance footage. In a still released by Greenville Police, the man can be seen smiling while holding a paper plate in one hand and a can of “ammo” in the other. He seemed to think the whole thing was one big joke.
- One of the man’s targets was a mother walking her child. The victim was pushing her young child in a stroller on the sidewalk when the assailant smashed her in the face with a plate full of whipped cream.
- Police are treating the incident as an “assault.” The unknown man’s crime against the woman is said to have taken place around 2:30 p.m. near the Main Street Bridge, though reports of similar incidents happened elsewhere in the city throughout the day.
- Greenville Police are now trying to identify the man. They’re asking anyone with further information as to his identity and whereabouts to come forward with the information. Something tells me that won’t happen.
