Shoplifting Suspect Stabs 2 Employees with Hypodermic Needle

The NYPD says a shoplifting suspect stabbed two bodega employees with a hypodermic needle. It happened shortly before 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at Joe’s G-M Deli on Broadway. Police said the suspect tried to take two 40 ounce bottles of Old English malt liquor from the store without paying.

When two employees, ages 24 and 16, confronted him, the suspect allegedly stabbed them with the needle. He took off hearing north on Broadway toward Tiemann Place and the employees were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Anyone with any information is asked to call NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 800.577.TIPS (8477) or 888.57.PISTA (74782) for Spanish. You can also submit a tip via the Crime Stoppers website, by Tweeting @NYPDTips or by texting a tip to 274637 (CRIMES) and then entering TIP577… CBS New York
