A 37-year-old man was beaten and robbed in Rosedale last week after he walked out of a convenience store and bumped into one of his attackers.
The incident occurred at around 1:45 a.m. on Wednesday, July 13, after a man and a woman followed the victim from the deli to the front of 243-20 145th Ave. where they began to kick and punch the man, resulting in his tooth getting knocked out.
The couple took his cellphone and his wallet, police said. The couple drove off in a white car eastbound on 145th Avenue.
The NYPD released surveillance video of the couple and their getaway car. The man wore a white T-shirt, long red shorts, and a pair of flip-flops. The woman wore a black top, ripped blue jeans and dark sandals.
