Police Say Motive For The Attack Remains Unclear

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are looking for two suspects who are wanted for attacking a store employee with a hammer on Staten Island.

It happened early Wednesday morning at the Itsy Bitsy Baby furniture store Forest Avenue.

Two men walked into the store, assaulted a 30-year-old employee with a hammer and then took off, police said. Nothing was taken from the store and police said the suspects didn’t say anything to the victim to suggest a possible motive.

Both suspects were seen on surveillance video.

Police describe the suspects as black men in their 20s. One suspect is about 6 feet tall with a thin build and was wearing a white t-shirt. The second suspect is about 6-foot-3-inches tall, about 200 pounds and was wearing a white t-shirt.
