A customer flew into a rage at a Queens spa when he didn’t get a “happy ending “ to his massage and attacked two workers with a hammer — before smashing their piggy bank tip jar to pieces, cops said Sunday.
The wild rampage was caught on surveillance video released late Saturday by cops who are asking the public’s help tracking down the loon.
The mayhem began when the customer demanded his money back from a 55-year-old worker at Tao Spa Bodywork on 40th Rd. near Main St. in Flushing around 10:30 p.m. Thursday, cops said.
He was unhappy his request for a “happy ending” to the rubdown was turned down, according to police sources.
When the worker refused him a refund, he flew into a rage, pulled out a hammer, dragged her into the 24-hour spa’s front waiting room and punched her in the face, the video shows.
Two other employees tried to come to the woman’said, but the man grabbed one of them, a 56-year-old woman, by the throat and pushed her against the wall while brandishing the hammer, the video shows.
The women finally gave the customer $40 to get rid of him, police said. Still unsatisfied, he smashed a yellow piggy bank sitting on the front counter to pieces with his hammer, snatched the tip money inside and dashed off, cops said.
Medics treated both workers at the scene.
The suspect is described as Hispanic, between 20 and 30, 5-foot-6 and 160 pounds with black hair. He was wearing a gray hooded coat, dark-colored jeans, tan work boots and a light-colored backpack.
