Law enforcement authorities are looking for two females and five males who they say sent three victims to the hospital after a verbal dispute escalated into an assault at a deli in the Bronx early Sunday morning.
The NYPD has released stunning footage from 1253 Deli’s security cameras showing the moment at about 4:25 a.m. on Sunday when a heated discussion at 1253 Castle Hill Ave. in the Unionport neighborhood turned into a one-sided fight.
The video shows one of the victims getting mauled by the group after he scuffled with one of the suspects, with one of the women smacking him using a metal display rack.
Two other male suspects are also seen entering the store and sucker punching the victim in the head and sides.
Two victims at the scene suffered stab wounds and the third sustained several facial fractures in the melee, according to cops. One of the victims has been treated and released from the hospital, while the two others are still at the facility but in stable condition, the NYPD’s announcement says.
