Local grocery store Wholesome Fresh suffered a hit-and-run on Sunday night, leaving a store-front window shattered.

CPD spokesperson Robert Goulston wrote that a motor vehicle “struck a street sign” in front of the grocery store, fleeing the scene before the police arrived.

“The sign broke away from its base and went into the window of the business, shattering the glass,” Goulston wrote in an email to The Crimson.

Wholesome Fresh – a grocery store located at the corner of Church and Brattle Street — has operated in Harvard Square since 2018.

According to Goulston, a pedestrian was sprayed with broken glass during the incident. The individual was treated by medics on the scene but suffered no visible injuries and refused any further care or treatment.

Rigo Pérez — an employee at Wholesome Fresh — said that debris from the crash was littered on the store’s floor when he arrived at work on Monday.

“It was pretty bad,” he said. “Even in the morning, when I showed up to work, it was like pieces of glass everywhere.”

The driver of the vehicle remains unknown to authorities.

The store opened as normal on Monday and Pérez said the window will be fixed on Tuesday.
