WILLIAMSBURG (PIX11)-- An employee at Roshan's Deli and Grocery on Broadway in Williamsburg claims a teen walked into the store Saturday evening, tried to scam the business, bit him on the arm and then tried to set him on fire.
The flames came "close to my face," Mohammed Wahwed told PIX 11 News.
Wahwed says although DaQuan Murrell wore a woman's wig when he entered the store Saturday evening around 6:30 he immediately recognized him from previous run-ins.
Murrell allegedly tried to purchase $200 worth of merchandise Saturday with a fraudulent PayPal card when Wahwed says he called police and tried to keep Murrell in the store.
That's when Wahwed claims Murrell reached for a lighter and a can of Axe cologne spray and tried to burn him. Wahwed was not harmed by the flames.
Murrell was arrested, he pleaded not guilty to several charges including assault and criminal weapons possession.
