An argument inside a Bronx grocery store turned violent after a man grabbed a container of canned food and slugged a teen girl in the head.
Police say on March 2, a 25-year-old suspect had gotten into a dispute with a 14-year-old girl inside Fm Deli Grocery Corp on East 163rd Street in Morrisania.
The NYPD didn’t say what the argument was over, but they said the suspect grabbed a can of Chef Boyardee and hit the teenager in the head, cutting it.
The girl was taken to an area hospital, where she was treated and released.
