Thug Assaults Two Women At NYC Deli, Sends To Hospital


BROOKLYN — A man attacked two women in a Brooklyn deli, knocking one to the ground, police said Wednesday.

He approached the victims in a Utica Avenue deli near Sterling Place early on Sunday and tried to talk to the pair of women, officials said.

Video shows him put down his bag and then slug one woman before turning on the other woman and repeatedly punching her before leaving the deli.

The 21-year-old victim suffered a detached retina, police said. The 24-year-old victim suffered pain and bruising.

Police have asked for help identifying the man, who is believed to be in his 30s.

NBC New York reports both women were taken to the hospital, where they were listed in stable condition.

This is not the only recent violent incident that has occurred in a deli in recent weeks.

According to 1010 WINS, an 18-year-old man was shot and killed in a deli in East New York last Wednesday.
