There were several officers outside South End Buttery late Saturday night, as well as a police cruiser parked in front of the bakery, located at 314 Shawmut Avenue. One of the storefront's large windows sustained visible damage, with cracked glass from the top to bottom of the pane. Employees were also seen standing inside, where the lights were on. The business closes at 9 p.m. on Saturdays, according to hours posted online.
