A second location of Tacos Rapidos, which serves Mexican fast food 24/7, opened last fall at 2345 West Alameda Avenue, thrilling hungry night owls.

But apparently not everyone appreciates the new outpost.

According to a Denver Police Department report, at 2:54 a.m. on March 13, officers responded to a call at the newTacos Rapidos, where employees said that a man had gotten into an argument with customers and then broken a large window in front of the restaurant.

Employees chased the man, but he escaped through an alley.

And Tacos Rapidos didn't miss a beat.
