Ragin’ Cajun! Guy robs fried-chicken joint with broomstick

Bristling: The suspect threatens a clerk (amorphous pixel-mass at left) with a broom.

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.
