New York City deli clerk gets jaw broken in avocado attack

Meanwhile, the suspect and an accomplice, who also threw avocados and trashed the place, remain at large, the New York City Police Department told HuffPost on Wednesday.

Video shows the workers cower and shield their faces as one suspect grabs from a pile of unripe avocados and start pelting them with the produce.

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

The alleged assaulters, meanwhile, fled the scene in a dark sedan.

The shocking moment two furious customers began hurling fruit at staff members at a NY deli just near Yankee Stadium has been captured on camera. The victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital in serious but stable condition.

Near the end of the video, the first man leaped over the counter and appeared to try to grab a worker. Moments later, the second man joins him.

The bodega clerk's jaw was broken in the attack along with other bones in his face, police said.

Both suspects are described as 25 to 30 years old. "The guy, he needed surgery on his eyes".
