American Pizza Manufacturing vandalized
The American Pizza Manufacturing restaurant at 7402 La Jolla Blvd. has been vandalized twice in recent weeks, the first time when windows were smashed and the second time when graffiti was sprayed on one of the exterior walls.
Both incidents involved a single person acting at night, according to surveillance footage.
“We have to redo the whole wall, this is the second time we have had to do it,” said APM owner Andrew Melone. “Anyone who does this, if we are targeted, it does not deter us. It’s boring, but we’re still proud to be in La Jolla. We do a great job serving the community.
American Pizza Manufacturing was embroiled in a legal battle with a local resident in which each sued the other, alleging harassment and other things. It is unclear if the vandalism had a connection.
Coronavirus in numbers

The postcode is residence code, which may not be the place of exposure.
