A New Rochelle man who was angered that he could not enter the Port Chester supermarket at 5 a.m. Saturday is accused of using a shopping cart to smash a front window of the store, according to Port Chester police.
Sean Fields, 25, of 35 Davenport Ave., New Rochelle, is charged with a felony count of criminal mischief as a result of the incident at Pathmark on Midland Avenue. Police said Fields tried to enter the store, but members of a cleaning crew would not let him in because the supermarket was closed.
Fields, according to police, then started banging on the doors, demanding that he be allowed into the supermarket. Again, the cleaning crew told him the store was closed.
Fields is accused of then using a shopping cart from the supermarket to smash a front window. Police said the window is valued at more than $500, leading to the felony charge against Fields.
No one was injured when the window was smashed.
Fields was arrested and later was released on $750 bail pending a Sept. 21 hearing in Port Chester Village Court.
Police do not know what Fields wanted to by at the supermarket.
