Police are hoping surveillance video helps them find whoever is responsible for the death of a Brooklyn deli worker Friday morning.

The above video shows one suspect entering the Stanley Avenue deli in East New York at around 5 a.m. Friday.

The man then walks out with a bag.

Two other suspects are seen either entering or standing near the deli shortly after the first suspect left.

A customer found 55-year-old Hisham Zidan's body in the deli's basement later that morning.

Investigators say the cash register and back door to the deli were open when they arrived.

One suspect is described as being thin, between 5-foot-9 and 5-foot 11 and wearing a black jacket with two white X's embroidered on the back.

Police do not have a description for the other two men other than that they were wearing dark clothing.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
