A Times Square grocer was video assaulted, according to the NYPD

Police are looking for a man who threw a milk crate and traffic cones at a Times Square grocer in an attack caught on camera earlier this month.

The 57-year-old victim was approached at approximately 6:15 p.m. on May 14 at Seventh Avenue and West 40th Street, the NYPD said in a press release Saturday.

The two men got into a verbal argument that escalated and became physical.

The attacker kicked and punched the vendor and “picked up a milk crate and hit the victim in the head before throwing several traffic cones at the victim,” police officers said while releasing the footage.

The victim suffered a laceration to the head. He was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he was treated and discharged.

The suspect fled after the attack. He is described as a dark complexioned male with short dark hair, approximately 6ft 2in tall and weighing 160lbs.

He was last seen wearing a black surgical mask, sweatpants, black t-shirt, backpack and gray Crocs.
