Naked 60-year old woman go on street rampage

Now that we think about it, it probably is really hard to even try and control a naked 60-year-old woman on a rampage. Especially when she is running through a Chinese restaurant in Bay Ridge or running out into the street to spread eagle on the roof of a car. Police were eventually able to control the woman, but not before a crowd of nearly 300 onlookers gathered to watch her public meltdown.

The incident took place after 3 p.m. on Thursday in Bay Ridge on Third Avenue between 80th and 81st Streets. The woman in question, who police are declining to identify, was apparently a regular on the strip known for muttering to herself but had never been known to do anything like this. Apparently what set her off was seeing something that said "Free" (possibly "free delivery") in the window of Dragon China between 79th and 80th Streets. When the cashier there told her that everything wasn't free the woman started screaming, stripping her clothes off and throwing things around.
"This old lady was trashing the place," Noreen Monier, who owns a nearby store, told The Brooklyn paper. "I told her to stop and she threw a watermelon at me. She had superhuman strength. She said, 'I’ll stop when I’m good and ready.'" She really had at the place, too. Reportedly picking up phones, answering calls and throwing money around.

After doing more damage there the woman moved to the streets and laid down on the hood of a black convertible, whose driver didn’t know what to do. Finally, the police get her under control, but it took a lot of effort.

At least nobody was hurt. It is unclear if the woman, who is clearly disturbed, has been charged with anything at this time.
