COSTA MESA, Calif. – Costa Mesa police arrested two women after a restaurant was vandalized over the weekend in plain sight of diners and restaurant staff.
On Oct. 5 at about 1:30 p.m., police responded to reports of a woman with a bat that had entered a restaurant in the 3300 block of Bristol Street in the South Coast Plaza area in Costa Mesa.
Police say 27-year-old Fullerton resident Passion Shenay Coleman used a bat to vandalized a television, table settings, and plates causing thousands of dollars in damages. She is also a former employee of the restaurant and known to the staff.
A day earlier, Coleman showed up at the restaurant and police say she made criminal threats and threw a plate at a restaurant employee before leaving the scene.
Authorities say both women had facepaint and some sort of powder on to conceal their identities at the time of the Oct. 5 incident.
