Rigoberto Reyes, 57, was caught a short while later. The deli worker, who did not have a second to respond, had to get stitches in his shoulder. The deli owner tells Eyewitness News that Reyes is known to them – they claim they usually have to ask him to refrain from drinking outside their door, but had not seen him for about a month. The 30-year-old worker is recovering at home, while business at the deli goes on as usual.
