At approximately 10:18 a.m. on November 9, an impudent crook raided a building near 44th and 74th Streets and was caught on surveillance footage carrying several boxes away from a common area. police said Wednesday.
The suspect also entered the building’s garage, where he confronted a 49-year-old employee.
A crook allegedly punched a worker in the face, leading to an altercation between the two men.
Investigators said the brawl ended when the parcel thieves fled on foot north on Seventh Avenue toward Woodside Avenue with several boxes, investigators said.
The NYPD released details of the crime on Wednesday and asked the public for help in identifying suspects.
A construction worker suffered minor injuries, but refused treatment on site.
