Police are looking for a man who stabbed a 32-year-old grocery store employee during a robbery in Sunnyside Saturday night.
Police said the man entered Sunnyside Gardens Market—located at 46-01 Skillman Avenue—just before midnight on Jan. 11.
The suspect approached the cashier and attempted to take money out of the register as the employee opened the drawer while helping another customer, police said.
The suspect then got in to an altercation with the employee and stabbed the worker in the shoulder and forehead before taking $150 cash and fleeing the store. The victim was not seriously injured.
No arrests have been made and the investigation is still ongoing, according to police.
The owner of the store did not want to comment for the story.
