New York City deli clerk gets jaw broken in avocado attack

Two men seen tossing avacados in a Bronx deli after the cook messed up their orders

Surveillance video shows one of the suspects casually grabbing several avocados before getting into a pitching position and throwing them at the employees.

The first man can be seen jumping over the counter before he snatched a bunch of bananas and tossed them at the workers.

The store owner said it all started when the suspect ordered food.

The weird attack was sparked when the two men became furious at a cook for getting their early morning food order wrong, the New York Daily News reports.

The NYPD is looking for two men in connection to an alleged assault-by-avocado at a deli near Yankee Stadium last month, CBS New York reports.

He suffered cuts and fractures to his face as well as a broken jaw. "The guy, he needed surgery on his eyes", Jirgis said.
