90-Year-Old Man Assaulted, Robbed in Bronx Store

Police are searching for a man who robbed a 90-year-old store worker in the Bronx, pushing the frail man to the ground several times before running off. 

The robber walked into the Bueno Borito Borato clothing store at 680 Melrose Ave. last Saturday evening and pushed him to the ground, police said. The suspect then grabbed money from the cash register and ran away. 

"He pushed me several times and the way he did it was tremendous," said the elderly victim, Hector Diego Bellomo, who was alone in the store at the time.

Bellomo said he was in shock after the assault but was recovering. 

"I feel OK but I have a few black and blues and I have a pain in my back," he said. "But I hope I will feel better. "
