Police are looking for these two men after breaking a man's jaw in a Bronx deli assault

Surveillance video shows one suspect grabbing several avocados, winding up like an Major League Baseball pitcher and violently throwing the fruits at employees behind the counter.

Brad Gomez, 28, of the Bronx, was arrested Thursday and charged with assault.

CBS reported Tuesday that the incident occurred after the men tried to order food and a deli worker who did not speak English could not understand them.

Bangladesh beat NZ in biggest Champions Trophy 2017 upset
Neither does defensive cricket too well, and they duly began with a counterattacking four each in the 13th over. New Zealand , who had been 152 for three off 30 overs, only managed 113 more runs in the last 20 overs.

The other suspect joins in and starts hurling avocados around the store. When they became angry, the 21-year-old clerk tried to kick them out. Another employee tries to dodge the flying fruit.

The barrage was so fierce that one of the employees suffered fractures to his face and a broken jaw. The attackers fled in a dark-colored sedan, while the victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital in serious but stable condition. "I know it sounds amusing, an avocado", he said. He also needed surgery to his eyes.

The missile appeared to catch the clerk off guard, hitting him in the side of the face as he was looking away, according to dramatic video released by police.
