Anthony Hennis is wanted for allegedly assaulting and robbing a teenager on a subway in Brooklyn.

BROOKLYN (PIX11) – The father of Antiq Hennis, the one-year-old shot and killed in his stroller in Brownsville, is wanted for allegedly robbing a teenager on the subway Thursday afternoon.

Police say Anthony Hennis, 22, and another male suspect approached a 19-year-old boy on a southbound No. 3 train approaching the Saratoga station at about 3:30 p.m., making threats for his watch. After the boy handed over the watch, one of the suspects punched him in the face and they fled the station.

Back in August, Hennis, a known gang member, was walking little Antiq across the street in his stroller when two men opened fire. One of the bullets struck Antiq in the head, killing him. Cops believe the gunmen were aiming for the elder Hennis, seeking retribution for a drive-by-shooting last  year. The community was outraged when Hennis would not cooperate with police and help identify his baby’s killers.


Hennis was killed in his strolling crossing a street in Brownsville.

Hennis is described as about 6’2″, with black hair and brown eyes. His accomplice is described as a male in his 20s, 6’2″, with braids.

Anyone with information on the suspects’ whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
