WATCH: Men hurl avocados at deli worker breaking his jaw

CCTV footage released by the NYPD has gone viral with viewers gobsmacked by the assailants’ weapons of choice.

The vision is from inside a deli in the New York City borough of the Bronx.

In the video, two men are seen hurling avocados at a worker behind the counter after they apparently became involved in a dispute over a food order.


The victim ended up with a broken jaw and plenty of bruises.

The incident happened in May, but police are hoping the men in the video will be recognised.
