NYPD: Man punches bagel store employee in face, steals tip jar

June 19, 2017 Staff Report

The NYPD released video Saturday of a suspect wanted for robbing a neighborhood bagel shop last month.

According to police, the suspect entered the LIC Bagel Shop, located at 31-08 36th Avenue, at around 3:15 pm on Sunday May 14 and took the tip jar off the counter. When a 30-year-old male employee went to stop him, the suspect punched him in the face and fled the location with an undetermined amount of cash.

The suspect is described as black, approximately 35-years of age, 6’2″, 220 lbs, hazel eyes, black hair, last seen wearing black sneakers, and a blue jacket (see video).

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS

Pretty good picture of the guy, hopefully NYPD already knows the guy.

Video looks like he stopped at the deli down the block that specializes in selling bongs/waterpipes and other drug paraphenalia.


Its the wrong store or video because the LIC bagels is a restaurant not a deli/groceries store
