LINGERIE THIEF Attacks With Baseball Bat

A robber stealing lingerie from an adult video store in Brooklyn on Sunday whacked the store owner on the head with a baseball bat and fought with police who tried to arrest him.

The suspect ultimately got away, The New York Post said.

The incident took place at about 9:30 a.m. on Sunday at Video City in Sunset Park, according to police.

“The guy took the lingerie and then said he wanted to see the DVDs,” said Aruna Bevapriyi, 55, whose cousin has owned and run the store for about 20 years. “Then he put the lingerie and DVDs in a bag and tried running away.”

Police said both the store owner and police officers suffered minor injuries.

Bevapriyi said his cousin had cuts near the right cheek and bumps on the head and was taken to the hospital for an evaluation. He also said the cops took surveillance video from the store and hoped it would lead to the suspect.
