The father of a 1-year-old boy who was shot and killed in Brooklyn last month has been arrested on charges he robbed and punched a subway rider, according to police.
Anthony Hennis, 22, was in police custody Thursday. He's accused, along with another alleged perpetrator, of threatening a 19-year-old man on the 3 train in Brownsville on Oct. 3, and forcing him to hand over his watch. Police say the pair then punched the victim in the face and fled.
Hennis is the father of Antiq Hennis, who was shot as he was being pushed in a stroller by his father in Brownsville on Sept. 1. Four shots were fired, and one hit Antiq in the left side of his head; he was declared dead on arrival at a hospital. Two bullets were found in his stroller.
Authorities have said the shooting may have been gang-related, with his father the intended target. Two men have been arrested in Antiq's shooting death.
Anthony Hennis was not cooperative in the police investigation into Antiq's killing, police said.
It was not immediately clear if Hennis had an attorney.
