Barry's Steaks Broken Into

'The only thing is that we have some broken glass, and we have to open late,' according to the woman who runs the Roxborough restaurant.

Barry's Steaks opened for business late on Tuesday after the restaurant was broken into late Monday night or early Tuesday morning.

According to Wendy McGuinn who runs the Roxborough restaurant on Leverington Ave. with her husband Barry, nothing was stolen.

"We don't leave anything here overnight," McGuinn said.  "The only thing is that we have some broken glass, and we have to open late."

McGuinn said that police have already apprehended the culprit.

"Now we just need to focus on getting open so we can make some money," McGuinn said.

As of 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Barry's had not reopened.  McGuinn says she expects the restaurant to reopen in the next 90 minutes.

Hey Jess , Jay here - If they would advertise the name of the culprit as they do the crime , I think the neighbors could handle this dude in their OWN fashion ! I'm sure you're with me on that one !!!

We can only hope that this criminal is fully prosecuted to the full extent of the law and that the victim's pursue the prosecutuion of the felon and do not succumb to the dreaded Stockholm syndrome, a psychological phenomenon in which victims of crimes express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings for the criminals sometimes to the point of defending them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the damage, grief and problems the felon caused the victim to suffer. It's obvious the people who own and operate this restaurant are good hard working people. It had to be expensive for the cleanup and replacement of all the glass and all the damage this felon did. We hope that no one was cut by the broken glass during the cleanup. That's a great restaurant as we have eaten inside Barry's many times and have ordered food on the phone and they have great food and great service. Our sympathy and empathy is for the hard working honest victims of the crimes and not for the perpetrator.
