The New York City Police Department has released surveillance images of an unknown suspect who threatened people with a baseball bat in Boro Park.

On Sunday at 4 p.m., at the Medicine Chest Pharmacy at 4407 15th Avenue, the suspect began to yell at a man and threatened him with a baseball bat.

A manager from the pharmacy told Hamodia that the incident had nothing to do with the store; the men were arguing on the sidewalk, one ducked into the store, and the other followed him. No one was hurt and no merchandise was damaged.

The suspect fled in a red Nissan with temporary plates.

Police are asking people who have information on the suspect to inform the 66th Precinct, who have jurisdiction in the area.
