Actor Michael Rapaport shared a concerning social media video on Tuesday appearing to show a suspect strolling down the aisle of a Manhattan-area Rite Aid that he reportedly had just burgled.
What are the details?
Rapaport shared the video to Instagram, where he captioned it, "Duke [sic] just went CHRISTMAS SHOPPING at @riteaid. I’m TRIPPING this happened in broad day like it was nothing.”
He added that the store in question is reportedly set to close on Feb. 15 due to rampant shoplifting incidents.
He also tagged New York City Mayor Eric Adams, writing, "YO[.]"
In the video, the suspect — who remains unnamed at the time of this reporting — can be seen walking down the aisle with two stuffed bags, nodding to the security guard positioned near the front of the store. He unhurriedly strolls out of the store and continues walking down the street as if nothing had happened.
In the video, Rapaport can be heard saying, "I can't believe I'm seeing this s**t. This f***ing guy just filled his two bags up with everything in Rite Aid, right here on 80th and First Avenue and is walking down the street like s**t is Gucci."
"I was watching him the whole time," he added. "Looking me in my face like 'What's good?' My man just went Christmas shopping in January. He had the condoms, the shampoo."
At the time of this reporting, Rapaport's video has been viewed more than 185,00 times.
