NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — The father of a 1-year-old boy who was shot and killed in Brooklyn in September was arrested on robbery charges on Thursday.

Anthony Hennis, 22, and his younger brother Ammany were arrested in connection with an incident that took place on October 3.

Shortly after 8 p.m. the pair allegedly approached a man riding the southbound 3-train. As the train approached the Saratoga Ave. subway station the suspects made verbal threats before punching the victim in the face and making off with his watch.

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.
