Queens Bagel Shop Worker Attacked by Tip Jar Robber

Police are looking for a man suspected of robbing a Queens bagel shop and attacking one of the store's workers.

Investigators say the man took the tip jar from the counter at the LIC Bagel Store on 36th Avenue in Long Island City back on May 14.

When an employee tried to stop him, the man allegedly punched the worker in the face and took off with the money.

It's not clear how much money was taken.
