Police are looking for a man who freaked out at a Little Caesars on Valentine’s Day, throwing punches at a cashier, grabbing the phone and cash register and knocking over a rack of food. He eventually fled in a car with some friends.

The footage, from the Little Caesars on West Girard Avenue, is one of the more incredible police surveillance videos in some time. Let’s go through it with GIFs.

Little Caesars fightThe video shows the man enter the Little Caesars, engage in an discussion with a cashier, who cops say is 35. He must have been in the store before, because after just a little bit of conversation he throws a punch. What could the cashier have possibly said? It’s a haymaker but, given the distance between him and the cashier due to the counter, that was probably all he could throw.

He really winds up well on this toss. Shouldn’t he be in Clearwater already? Pitchers and catchers have reported for Spring Training.

Their faces are blurred, so perhaps they made facial expressions, but they don’t appear to flinch much when the man who just destroyed the Little Caesars says something to them afterward. They receive the “Most Philly Philadelphians” award of the day.

Police are asking if anyone recognizes this man to contact them. He’s wanted for aggravated assault. You can submit tips to police by calling 215.686.8477, texting a tip to 773847 or using this online form.
