Mystery Porch Pirate Pumpkin Stem Snatcher Caught on Camera in New Bedford
It's the season for pumpkin spice and everything that's "not" nice.
This might be the strangest and most mind-numbing story/video I've ever seen. In the North End of New Bedford, a man was caught red-handed on a Ring Camera vandalizing someone's pumpkin. When Mellissa Liborio realized that her front porch pumpkin had been damaged, she took to her door camera and couldn't believe what she found.
Somewhere out there is a mystery man who randomly snapped the stem off of Liborio's pumpkin with no explanation or reason and I need answers.
On Wednesday, October 4th, Liborio's front porch Ring Camera picked up some movement activity at exactly 5:03 PM. In the video, you're about to see a man who appears to be in his late '40s/50s in a bright red shirt that appears to say something along the lines of 'New Bedford Braves'—a local athletic shirt of sorts. He casually walks over to Liborio's porch, places one hand on the pumpkin and the other on the pumpkin, and proceeds to snap the stem off. See for yourself:
Needless to say, it's an odd thing for anyone to do and I'm not here to judge, I'm. here to find justice for Liborio's pumpkin.
At first glance, I thought he was trying to snatch the whole pumpkin and run, but you can see clearly as day that one hand is pushed down on the pumpkin to secure it while the other, with swift force, grabbed the stem and snapped it.
"My ring cam is right there on the door," Liborio puzzlingly said, "I don’t understand why he didn’t see it."
Again, these are questions we may never know the answers to, but I'll do my best to make this guy "Fun 107 Famous" if I have to. As of now, no charges have been filed and all that's left is utter confusion. If anyone has an inkling or tips on who this person may be, you can email me at Gazelle@Fun107.com and I'll keep you anonymous.
Until then, can we just leave other's property alone? It's spooky season for crying out loud.
