Police are searching for the goon who stole lottery tickets from a Stillwell Avenue deli on March 16 and attacked the clerk when he confronted him.
The jerk walked into the store between surf and Mermaid Avenues at 3:15 pm and grabbed the tickets without paying, police said. When the store employee told him to pay up, the man pushed the clerk, threatened to kill him, and fled the store, a police report states.
Officials are describing the assailant as an 18-year-old man standing 6-feet tall and weighing about 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark red, waist-length jacket, police said.
