THE BRONX -- A group of bandits marched into deli and stole various items before knocking out a store employee in the Bronx last month, according to police.

Surveillance video released Tuesday by police shows the incident unravel on the evening of May 27 when a bunch of thieves entered 2253 Grand Concourse and began taking products off the store shelves.

Cops said they then attempted to leave the store without paying but were confronted by a store employee, who got items thrown at him while others punched him about the head and body.

Once they exited the store, one of the attackers hit the clerk with an umbrella, causing a laceration, according to the NYPD. The thieves then fled the store in an unknown direction, cops said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
