Officers said Saturday a young cow at the Saba meat store got loose and ran across the street to Home Depot, followed by Saba employee Badr Musaed and Andy Morrison, a contractor doing renovation work there armed with a bow and arrow.
[T]he police report said, “…as the cow ran towards the employees Morrison shot at the cow however he missed and the arrow struck the wall of the Home Depot.”
Moments later, in the back of the Home Depot, Musaed was observed pulling out a foot long knife, and then police said, “Three of the employees grabbed onto the cow…one employee… pulled out a knife and proceeded to cut the cow’s throat.”
It prompted a police officer to raise his arms in disbelief. He then had this exchange with one of the store employees who tackled the cow:
“Officer: you know this is a big, this is a problem. This is not something that can be done.”
Saba employee: “We try to do our best, you know.”
Officer: “Okay, but you guys get, like, you get a leash, you got something, like, like this kid here just watched you slit a cow’s throat.”
Saba employee: “They come in our store all the time.”
Officer: “Okay, but we’re not in your store right now, you’re in the back of Home Depot.”
Bloomfield police gave Musaed a ticket for creating a public disturbance, noting in the incident report that Musaed and his coworkers appeared unremorseful.
