Woman is arrested as pizza parlour row footage goes viral

By Staff Reporter

A shocking video of a woman trying to wrestle her way into a pizza parlour in Belfast city centre has sparked a police investigation.

The video posted on Facebook shows the woman in an altercation with customers and staff at Apache Pizza on Bradbury Place.

She attempts to get into the takeaway in search of a food, but is resisted.

At one point she is seen falling to the ground close to a telephone box and just inches from a busy road.

She struggles to her feet, and is then seen once again trying to get into the pizza parlour, pushing and pulling at the glass front door.

The footage later shows the door shatter into tiny pieces, and the woman falling backwards onto the shards of glass as onlookers gasp in shock.

Last night Apache Pizza owner Satwinder Singh was on duty behind the counter.

He told the Belfast Telegraph that the incident was the first of its kind to happen since the business opened.

There was an empty space where the door of the hot food outlet had been, however it remained opened for business as usual.

Mr Singh said police were investigating the incident, which occurred in the early hours of yesterday, and had spoken to the woman seen in the video.

He added that he did not wish to make any further comment about what happened.

The video, which has already had more than three million views from internet users, can be seen on the Facebook site The Real Northern Ireland Craic at https://www.facebook.com/northernirishcraic/

Police attended the scene and arrested a 28-year-old woman on suspicion of two counts of assault, possession of a class B drug and criminal damage.
