When restaurant workers told the woman they only had vanilla left, she allegedly spat on them and then “used an aluminum baseball bat to break the glass windows of the business and threatened the victims,” according to a police summary obtained by The Smoking Gun.

The unidentified suspect drove away in a gray SUV, according to the summary.

None of the workers were hurt
