Man attacked with bottle at Bronx deli, receives gnarled cuts to face: Police


A deranged attacker struck a man with a bottle during a confrontation inside a Bronx deli, leaving the victim with twisted gouges across his face, police said Saturday.

The 35-year-old victim needed more than 40 stitches to seal deep cuts on her lip and cheek after the March 4 assault inside a Gourmet Deli on White Plains Road near Nereid Ave. in Wakefield, police said.

The victim was inside the deli at around 8:00 p.m. when her attacker, who was wearing a black wool cap and a canary yellow North Face coat, barged in and began arguing with him.

When the two came to blows, the suspect repeatedly hit him in the face with a Corona beer bottle, police said.

The bottle broke when it struck the victim, cutting her face, police said.

The victim was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was treated and released.

The suspect fled. No arrests have been made.

It was not immediately revealed if the victim was a deli employee or a customer. It was also unclear what the two men were arguing about, a police spokesman said.

Police on Saturday released surveillance footage of the suspect taken before the attack in the hope that someone would recognize him. He was caught on surveillance camera walking, apparently upset, out of the store, holding the beer bottle and a cigarette, which he tucked behind his ear.

A pair of headphones can be found dangling from his other ear, the video shows.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call NYPD Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
