An apparent attempt to shoplift at a Manhattan boutique ended with a struggle and shattered glass.

The incident began around 6 p.m. Tuesday, when a group of people entered the Pilgrim Vintage Clothing Store on Orchard Street on the Lower East Side.

An owner confronted the suspects when he began to believe they were trying to shoplift.

That led to a struggle, where the owner and a suspect burst out the front window. The owner was taken to Bellevue Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Charges are pending against two men and a woman police arrested in the area.
