Watch: New York City clerk attacked in avocado assault
The New York Police Department is currently searching for a man caught on camera pelting a deli clerk with... Avocados?
The avocado assault, filmed by a surveillance camera, goes on for several seconds before the man is restrained.
The clerk, who was taken to the hospital following the attack, has since been treated for a broken jaw.
The incident occurred at the Stadium Gourmet Deli on E. 161st St. and Walton Ave. in the Bronx, The New York Post reported.
The man and a friend lost their tempers when the cook got their orders wrong -- possibly due to a language barrier, officials said.
Anyone with information on the identity of the avocado attacker is encouraged to contact the NYPD.
