Woodside Brick Bash

Police are searching for a suspect who tossed coffee on a drunken man inside a Queens bodega, then slammed him in the head with a brick on January 25.

Cops said the two men were arguing inside the Woodside Grocery on 61st Street and Woodside Avenue at about 11:45 p.m. on January 25th when the suspect attacked the victim, then ran from the store.

The 49-year-old victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center where he was treated for bruises and required several stitches to close a gash on his head.

The suspect is described as a black male in his late teens or early 20s. He was wearing a gray hoodie with a red and blue jacket at the time of the attack.

Police have released a surveillance photo of the suspect (see photo) and are urging anyone with information to call the CrimeStoppers HOTLINE at 1-800-577-TIPS or click on www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
