NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are searching for a man who recently lost his young son to gunfire.

Anthony Hennis and another man are suspected of robbing a man at the Saratoga Avenue subway station in Brownsville on Thursday, police said.

The pair allegedly threatened a 19-year-old man before taking his watch and punching him in the face.

Hennis’ 16-month-old son, Antiq, was shot and killed in his stroller in Brownsville last month.
