Pair Allegedly Stole Watch, Punched Man On No. 3 Train In Brooklyn

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The man who allegedly helped Anthony Hennis, the father of a Brooklyn toddler killed in his stroller last month, with a subway robbery is reportedly the man’s younger brother.

Police are looking for Anthony Hennis, 22, and Ammany Hennis, 20. The pair robbed a man at the Saratoga Avenue subway station in Brownsville on Thursday, police said.

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

Ammany Hennis is Anthony’s brother, the New York Daily News reported.

On Sept. 1, Anthony Hennis was pushing his 16-month-old son, Antiq, in a stroller when the boy was struck and killed by a bullet. Police believe Anthony Hennis, a reputed gang member with a lengthy arrest record, was the intended target in the shooting.

Hennis refused to cooperate with investigators in the case. Police arrested and charged Daquan Breland, 23, and Daquan Wright, 19, with Antiq’s murder.

Police have asked for the public’s help in tracking down the robbery suspects. Both men are 6 feet, 2 inches tall with black hair and brown eyes. Ammany Hennis wears braids in his hair.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-8477 or to submit a tip online at NYPDCrimeStoppers. All tips will be kept confidential.
