Some heartless hooligan threatened and clocked employees at a Coney Island deli on Christmas Day, cops said.
The Scrooge strode into the Mermaid Avenue mart at West 32nd Street around 4:20 pm on Dec. 25., flashed a knife, and demanded the worker behind the counter hand over cash, police said.
The brute then repeatedly punched a second employee, before fleeing on foot without any green, according to officials, who said paramedics brought the second victim to a nearby hospital for treatment to a laceration on his hand.
Officers described the malefactor as in his 20s and roughly 5-feet-10-inches tall, and said he was last seen wearing a white hoodie, dark pants, and dark sneakers.
Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at www.nypdcr
