Graphic Video Shows Beer Bottle Face Smash Outside Bronx Deli

Authorities are looking for a man believed to be about 50 years old who viciously bashed a younger man in the face with a beer bottle following an argument in a Bronx deli in May. 

Surveillance video from inside Gourmet Deli on Burhre Avenue May 23 shows the suspect gesturing at the 36-year-old victim as the victim stands by the counter. The victim shakes his head once or twice amid the apparent dispute. 

The video cuts out for a second and the two are next seen outside, where the suspect grabs a beer bottle by the lip and bashes the victim in the face. The bottle shatters upon impact and the suspect flees. 

The victim was treated at a hospital for minor cuts and bruising, police say. 

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
