The incident occurred about 2 p.m. on August 19 in the store on 206 Street in the Norwood section of the borough.
When the 10-year-old came in and asked the store clerk for a plastic bag, one of the women told the boy to thank the clerk.
He then told the pair to mind their own business.
“It escalated from there”, the source said.
Police are searching for a woman who allegedly stole money from a fast-food restaurant in the Bronx. Trying to teach a youngster some manners should not deteriorate into a police investigation, but that is what happened to the 5th grader who was struck repeatedly by another customer.
She then strikes out with her fist several times, although the exact moment of impact is not caught on camera.
It all started when the boy went to pick up a bag that he left inside his family’s deli. Enlarge The friend tried to hold the woman back, but to no avail. “It really doesn’t matter if he was rude to her. He’s just a kid and she doesn’t have the right to touch him”.
The child refused medical treatment, according to PIX 11 News.
