MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP)–

Manchester police are investigating the theft of an American flag from a man in a chicken suit.

The Hartford Courant reports that Eric Didio was waving the flag and dancing outside a newly renovated Boston Market restaurant Wednesday as part of his job, when a man jumped from a car, grabbed the flag and took off.

A customer who witnessed the incident called police.

The newspaper reported the dispatcher had a hard time relaying the call to officers, breaking into laughter while trying to say“chicken suit.”

Nathan Atwood, the restaurant’s general manager, says he stood beside the 23-year-old Didio for the rest of his shift Wednesday to provide security.

No arrests have been made.
