Store Clerk Suffers Broken Jaw While Being Assaulted Caught on Camera

Concourse, Bronx, New York — A Bronx clerk was seriously injured late last month after he was brazenly pelted with avocados and bananas in a bodega.

Police say the 21-year-old employee was behind the counter at the Stadium Gourmet Deli on East 161st Street in the Concourse section on May 29th when two suspects became angry following a dispute over a food order.

Newly released surveillance video shows the individuals repeatedly throwing unripe avocados and bananas at the employee.

“Somebody try to give you service, how you throw him with avocado?” said Hani Jirgis, the store’s owner. “This is no good.”

Jirgis says the customer and his friend appeared to be drunk at 5 a.m.

The suspects managed to get away in a dark colored sedan.

The victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital in serious but stable condition where he suffered a broken jaw along with fractures and a cut to his face.

“The guy, he needed surgery on his eyes,” Jirgis said. “I don’t know, what I say man, this action that he do is not normal.”
