He flew off the handle!
Cops are looking for the man who busted into a fried-chicken joint and threatened to batter an employee with a broomstick.
The wingnut got clerks at the cluck hut near Nostrand Avenue and Hillel Place to open the door to the closed restaurant a little after 1 am on Nov. 8, surveillance video shows.
But then he appears to get into an argument with the worker and pushes his way in, grabbing a nearby broom and brandishing it at the retreating fryer jockey.
The loony robber tossed over a trash can and eventually made off with a worker’s cell phone.
The suspect and victim did not know one another, and it is not clear what the thief was trying to accomplish, police said.
