"It wasn’t a random attack"

A Japanese bakery in London Chinatown has been attacked.

Kova, which also has stores in Soho and South Kensington, had its Chinatown branch vandalised on Sunday at 3:34am.

The patisserie posted on Instagram about how the attacker splashed paint across the store front.

“As some of you may have known, our Chinatown boutique was attacked at 3:34am on Sunday 21/02/2021,” Kova’s Instagram post reads.

“It wasn’t a random attack, the suspect came fully prepared and splashed the shopfront with black paint.”

CCTV footage showed the perpetrator with a paint bucket but their face was covered by a mask.

Kova’s owners are offering £2,000 for information leading to an arrest.

“If you have any information about this incident, please contact us on admin@kovapatisserie.com. We pay cash rewards of up to £2,000, if the information you give to us leads to one or more people being arrested and charged; or it’s of significant use to law enforcement agencies.”
