A guy threw a steaming cup of coffee on another man in a Bedford-Stuyvesant bodega on April 19, according to a report.

The hothead got into an argument with the 32 year-old victim inside the store at Bedford and DeKalb avenues at around 11 am, then hurled the boiling brew at the man, burning the guy’s chest, police said.

Security footage of the Joe Schmo shows him sporting blonde hair and a goatee. Cops say he was last seen sporting sunglasses, a black T-shirt, black shorts, black sneakers, and a black backpack.

Police ask anyone with information about the incident to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at, or text 274637 followed by TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.

Reasonable discourse

Cynthia from Clinton hill says:
By the video it looked like the victim smacked the guys coffee out of his hand not the other way around It looked also the victim was the aggressor does anyone else agree with me??

May West from Park Slope says:
I agree Cynthia, but what you need to understand is that in liberal open-minded tolerant new york, it's cool to be a violent criminal, as they are worshipped and their rights are far more important than the rights of their victims no matter how heinous and violent the crime even if it results in the victim's death.
