SOUTH WILLIAMSBURG — A man was arrested for smashing several windows at a Williamsburg mini mall with a fire extinguisher, saying "the end of the world" had arrived, police and a witness said.
Jung Pryjma, 38, went into the Shops at 240 Kent Ave.around 1 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 16 while the businesses were closed, police said.
Pryjma then smashed the windows of several stores, according to police and a criminal complaint. He was "highly intoxicated" and ranting about the "end of the world" and the "zombie apocalypse," police and a witness said.
Police did not say which store windows Pryjma, who is 5-foot-7, 170 pounds and wore his hair in a ponytail, targeted.
"He didn't seem mentally fit," said the witness, who called police after seeing Pryjma outside in 1-degree weather.
By Monday, all the stores had repaired their windows.
