CONCOURSE, the Bronx (PIX11) — Two robbers seriously injured a store owner in the Bronx late last month, police said Thursday.
The 64-year-old victim attempted to stop the suspects after they tried to steal items from his store, located on Morris Avenue near East 163rd Street at around 5 p.m., authorities said. The suspects retaliated by punching and kicking him all over his body and knocking him to the ground, which caused him to hit his head, video of the assault showed.
The suspects ran off, and the victim was taken by EMS to a hospital for treatment of a serious head injury, according to officials. Police asked the public for any information that could lead to an arrest.
