Shock Video: Thieves Throw Knives During Rampage at NYC Deli

Workers at a deli in New York City narrowly avoided serious injury when suspects ransacked their store, hurling knives and merchandise at them during the melee, according to reports.

The disturbing incident unfolded at around 3 p.m. on Wednesday in the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan.

Three people entered Eleganza Gourmet Deli on Convent Avenue and asked to make a purchase on store credit, the New York Post reports.

When their request was denied, the trio became violent, with one man grabbing a knife off the counter and demanding cash from the register.

Surveillance footage of the attack has been released by NYPD Crime Stoppers in hopes of obtaining more information.
