Monica’s Bridal Releases Photo Of Monica’s Vandal


After an attempt to resolve the issue on their own, Monica’s Bridal (1637 Sheepshead Bay Road) has now gone to police and released the photo of the vandal who destroyed three of the storefront’s solid brass light fixtures last week.

The incident occurred at approximately 4:00 a.m. on April 2, dealing out approximately $1,000 worth of damage, the store’s owner told Sheepshead Bites.

Located just feet away from one of the light fixtures was a surveillance camera, which recorded the crime (still photo above).

Monica’s owners thought they recognized the vandal and attempted to seek reimbursement for the repairs rather than go to the police. However, after meeting with the individual they determined he was not involved.

If you recognize the person photographed above or have any other information regarding this crime, contact the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit

  1. Just so odd….   The owner’s of Monica’s recognize the person in the photo, or they thought they did, and instead of letting the Police handle it, they took it upon themselves to ‘determine that he was not involved’.  
    If they wanted to handle this themselves, they shouldn’t have made anything public. Nor involved any authorities. Or possibly their insurance company. 

    They have it set up so that anything done is covered by camera. Damage done, give disc to Police, contact insurance company. That is how the average business would handle vandalism. 

    Can’t help but wonder, are they still going to file a claim with their insurance company even if they get their man and get him to pay up?  Just something that could happen, not saying that it did or will…. 

  2. with todays technology, they should be able to Turn this blurry piece of dookie pic into a HD work of art.

    and then catch him.  Or is this blurry for a reason? 

  3. That’s how it comes up on camera. I assure you it’s not blurry just because, its the way the cameras are.

  4. I brought some scraps there. It started with old copper gutters and then you get addicted. It is a whole world of metal,Heavy Metal. LOL. Mostly a mans world but all the guys are nice and will educate a person as to what is worth $. 
    You should check the place out, it is fascinating. They own the one by the Gowanus canal also.
