NYPD seeking man who broke into NYC Roberta’s Pizzeria

The NYPD is searching for a man who broke into a popular Brooklyn pizzeria last week, authorities said.

The burglar broke into Michelin-rated Roberta’s Pizzeria at 261 Moore Street in Bushwick with a crowbar around 4 am on July 30, police said.

Cops said he attempted to open the cash register but was unable to steal anything. He damaged the restaurant doors while breaking in, according to police.

The suspect was caught on camera trying to peep through the windows of Michelin-rated Roberta’s.

The suspect — a bald man who wore a gray shirt and gold necklace with a black backpack — was caught on surveillance camera peering through the pizzeria’s windows before trying to force the front door open with his hands, video released by NYPD shows.

In another photo released by police, the man is wearing a Yankees cap.

Roberta’s, which opened in 2008, has served celebrities and politicians, including Bill and Hillary Clinton and R&B star Beyonce.

In 2016, employees at the pizzeria received death threats after rumors spread online connecting the restaurant to the Pizzagate conspiracy theory about a child abuse ring headed by Hillary Clinton.
