NEW YORK, NY – An employee working at BJ’s Wholesale Club in the Bronx was assaulted after questioning two women and a man with a stroller as they exited the store. The employee felt there could have been stolen items and not a baby inside the stroller, according to the NYPD.

When confronted, the two women began attacking the 20-year-old employee and fled the store.

The incident happened on October 21st, but the NYPD has released photos of the suspect this week and are asking the public to help identify them.

The employee was treated for minor injuries at the scene and released. Police believe the thieves took off with $300 in merchandise and a suitcase.
