Police: 2 wanted in connection to Sheepshead Bay bodega employee attack, robbery

Posted: Updated:
SHEEPSHEAD BAY -

Two people are wanted for attacking and robbing a bodega employee in Sheepshead Bay last week.

Police say it all started when three people tried to enter the Deli & Grill bodega and the store employee told them to leave.

According to police, the 33-year-old employee had previous run-ins with the three suspects and did not want them inside the store.

After asking them to leave, police say the two men became violent, using a pipe and brass knuckles to attack the worker while a woman robbed the store.

Police tell News 12 one 15-year-old has been arrested, but video captured inside the bodega shows two of the people police still want to speak with.

The victim was taken to the hospital where he was treated for lacerations and bruises but is expected to be OK. 

A $2,500 reward is now in place for any information that leads to an arrest. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
