Gothamist: The police have released a new video of the suspect who threw a smoke bomb into a Greenwich Village restaurant on Friday night. You can see him slowly opening the subway grate—prompting one pedestrian to walk around the grate—and then emerging to toss the device. The suspect then quickly ducks back underground. (This subway grate connects to the West 4th Street subway station.) The smoke bomb was thrown into Bar Pitti, which is located at 268 Avenue of the Americas and has a popular sidewalk seating area, around 5:49 p.m. It’s also a celebrity hangout. Da Silvano’s manager denies his restaurant was behind the attack; the Post reports: Da Silvano owner Silvano Marchetto and his former business partner, Bar Pitti’s Giovanni Tognozzi, have been beefing over stolen meatball recipes and corporate back-stabbing since 2002. “I know about the fighting, but I haven’t heard anything about it in a very long time,” said the manager, who identified himself as Alessio. Police sources said they do not believe that the rivalry played a role, but have ruled nothing out. The Post adds, “The bomb was made by a UK company and is sold on Amazon.com and eBay for as little as $8.” Cops describe the suspect as around 20 years old, with blond wavy hair. He was last seen wearing black gloves, black baseball cap, and a multi colored t-shirt. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
