March 11, 2019 Staff Report

A man was hit over the head with a brick in a fight that took place inside a Woodside store earlier this year, according to the NYPD, which said the suspect still at large.

The attack took place outside “Woodside Grocery” at 39-71 61st St. on Jan. 25, where the 49-year-old victim got into a dispute with the alleged assailant at around 11:45 p.m. before it escalated into a physical fight.

The attacker hit the 49-year-old with the brick—resulting in the victim sustaining a laceration and bleeding to the head—before he flees on foot.

EMS transported the victim to Elmhurst Hospital, where he received several stitches.

Police describe the suspect as black, in his late teens or early 20s, and last seen wearing a gray hoodie with a red and blue jacket.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-8477, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit

This case will be investigated by the NYPD right after the 43rd Avenue thumb tacks, Skillman Ave poster, and John Brown Smokehouse threat capers.

Given the matter happened in Jan 2019, the suspect most likely has left NYC already.

Awh.. he might be hiding out in Donovan’s listening to sounds from the old country. Hope the police take the boys and surround the place.

Is this a reference to Steven O’Brien, the Irish guy who killed Danny McGee (also from “the old country”) outside that bar on Queens Blvd? Pretty sure that wasn’t Donovan’s.
