Anthony Frazier, 25, is charged with robbery after slapping a man and stealing his green chili cheeseburger, according to a complaint filed in Santa Fe County Magistrate Court.
Police say the theft occurred at the Shake Foundation, at 631 Cerrillos Road.
A witness told police that Frazier, who had a brown belt around his neck, began dancing around the victim as he ate a green chili cheeseburger. Frazier knocked the cheeseburger out of the man’s hands before slapping him across the face, police say.
“Frazier picked up the burger and took off running heading north on Cerrillos Road,” the officer wrote. The witness identified Frazier as the man “who struck him and took his hamburger.”
And wore a brown belt around his neck.

Pennsylvania police say a man hoping to sell his car was taken for a ride when a prospective buyer drove away without him and never came back.
Investigators say the car’s owner advertised it online and met a man interested in buying his red 1995 Acura Integra with a charcoal gray hood. The owner drove the prospective buyer around for a while, then stopped and got out of the car to let the prospective buyer get into the driver’s seat. But police say the buyer drove away in the car before the owner could get back in.
The car was last seen in Dillsburg on Route 15, possibly headed toward Philadelphia.
No further breaking news is expected as Dillsburg (population 2,563) was asleep.

Authorities tell KING-TV that police in Lacey on Saturday also took into custody one person in connection with the case. Officials say someone stole the Winnebago on Friday evening from the parking lot of a Federal Way sporting goods store. That’s about 35 miles from where police in Lacey recovered the vehicle.
Police say surveillance video shows a young man with black hair and a red, white, and black backpack stealing the RV. Police say the show and service dogs include a Doberman pinscher, five toy fox terrier puppies, three miniature pinschers, and a poodle.
And a partridge in a pear tree.
