NEW YORK (CBS) ― A shocking scene was recently caught on video, a tape police hope will lead to a quick arrest.

The unbelievable images show a shopper just trying to pay up at a corner deli, when out of nowhere he is laid out with a haymaker that conjures memories of a young Mike Tyson.

CBS 2 HD was at the market in lower Manhattan Tuesday night to try to get to the bottom of what caused the nightmare scenario.

The customer's nightmare unfolded innocently enough as he was standing at the counter paying for some items just after midnight on Jan. 6. The shopper, a white man wearing a white coat, suddenly gets walloped by a black man in a dark vest and gray hoodie. Thanks to the deli's security cameras, police now have a fairly clear picture of the assailant as the entire sordid affair was captured from several angles.

The victim may have known he was in danger, but had no idea the punch was coming. He appears to be jawing with a group of men who circle him by the counter. The pain comes shortly after as the assailant launches a fierce punch that knocks the victim clear out of the camera's view.

The victim takes the brunt of the blow to the head and neck and goes sprawling to the floor. The assailant leaves, but some in his posse go over to the prone victim and take his money.

It turns out the entire episode started from beef over small aisle space.

"And when he pays the money, one of them hit in from the back, in the neck," deli employee Al Kass said.

A customer told CBS 2 HD on Tuesday night he was stunned to hear about the incident, but said it's something that is all too common in the big city.

"It's a shame things like this happen, but they do," Dana Clarke said. "So I'm not terribly surprised."

The aisle where the original dispute started is very narrow, with maybe room for one person.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital, treated and released.

In the meantime, police say thanks to the multitude of surveillance cameras and angles in the deli they are very confident they will be able to find who they are looking for because someone out there has to recognize the assailant.

Obviously a hate crime. I'm calling Rev Sharpton.
Sorry, but this isn't Al's territory.

<Rev. Al>You see, the black man was the victim here. In a country as great as the US, people of color should not have to worry about being tussled and bumped when walking down a narrow grocery isle. This is obviously something that the great Dr. King was in favor of with his fight for civil rights. Had the white oppressor had the common courtesy to wait until this gentleman had vacated the aisle and or store there would have been no altercation, because said white devil wouldn't have bumped into, rubbed up on, or otherwise accosted this poor innocent, hard working person of color. As for the money taken, it's a down payment on the reparations this man was entitled to by a white society that enslaved his ancestors almost 2 centuries ago. Besides, I can't possibly make any cash off a case like this.</Rev. Al>

Being in groups seems to bring out the best in them.

... group of YOUNG ADULTS!!!!
Golfers, Schwoogies, Canadians...whatever.....

The Press in this country are such fuckin pussies, and they wonder why people really don't pay attention to them as much as they used to, because the literary content has been totally pussified. think about it, every good newspaper columnist I've read in the past 25 years has ran away from the newspaper industry as fast as they could to become novelists, screen writers, etc. it's filled with pablum hacks anymore.

Really? I didn't read anything in the story about the color of the assailants or the victim. Oh wait a second.....

Stupid media!

I've said it before, but once again... It's not a joke. Not an exaggeration.

We are told not to mention race, in any case, except white. If it's a story like this, or a story of a kidtoucher or whatever. If any writer puts in "Looking for a white man"... no one says anything. But say "black man"... and we get yelled at.

Oh... and yes, this incident IS a hate crime. It should be prosecuted as such. But it won't.
Because black people just don't know any better -- we have to expect this behavior from them.

(Think that sounds racist? Well that's what the mentality and very definition of a hate crime is, if it only goes one way.)

Is there any way that you guys could stop even mentioning that?

"Due to corporate restrictions, we are unable to disclose the racial make-up of the suspects."

Hell, why not go one further. You know women commit crimes too. Why doesn't the media just say: "The the beating suspects are people, and the people were wearing jackets and pants. Please contact the police if you know anyone fitting this description."


As for what Dougal said, are you able to slip something in like "the suspect had incredibly curly hair, and is believed to have been seen leaving in a car with rims worth more than the car itself" to kind of indirectly get the point across?

I think I also got in trouble once for saying a suspect was wearing a "dew rag."

My argument was that we're doing the story because the police asked all the stations to do it... so they could help find the suspect. If we're not giving a description, why do the story. My boss at the time was such a cunt, she couldn't deal with my logic and cursed me out in front of the newsroom.

And black guys wonder why women clutch their pocketbook and people cross the street when they come strutting by, because 90% of them dress and walk and talk the same and this is the type of shit civilized society at large would like to avoid.

But, no, you are a racist when you do that, you are sterotyping them. To that I say better to be "racist" and safe then be the clueless fuck who gets laid the fuck out because he isn't suspect of them when they walk up on him.

I also find it funny that they are all such tough, macho guys yet they need to gang up on and blindside hapless victims. Fucking punks, all of them.

It's getting to the point where if a black person is suspected of a crime, police sketch artists will hand this over...
