NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The NYPD is trying to identify man they say is wanted in connection with a robbery in Brooklyn.

Police say the suspect walked into a 99 cent store on Irving Avenue at Stockholm Street in Bushwick back on Jan. 25 and began stuffing merchandise down his jacket sleeve.

When the suspect is confronted by a store employee, a fight breaks out, but cops say the alleged shoplifter manages to get away with the stolen goods.

The employees were not seriously hurt in the confrontation.

Anyone with information should call police or Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
