A North Side bakery owner is frustrated and fearful after she says her business was vandalized several times this year.

CHICAGO – A North Side bakery owner is frustrated and fearful after she says her business was vandalized several times this year.

“It’s frustrating, it’s sad, but it also makes me scared and concerned, especially like from a safety standpoint,” bakery owner Jenni Vee said.

Vee opened Jennivee’s Bakery five years ago and felt welcomed in the East Lake View neighborhood.

Then, came the vandals.

“It’s a good thing we do have surveillance cameras 24/7,” said Vee.

Surveillance video from the latest incident, which occurred earlier this week, shows four people casually walking by. Then, one goes after the patio’s planters with a vengeance.

Similar acts have happened twice recently, plus a few times last year.

The vandalism has not caused major damage, but has shaken up the staff.
