NEW YORK, New York -- An alleged shoplifter threatened a store worker in the Bronx with a hypodermic needle, police say.
The suspect reportedly put three dozen cans of Monster energy drinks in a plastic bag last weekend at a Ride Aid store and tried to leave without paying.
When a worker confronted the man, the suspect brandished the needle, and threatened to poke the worker with it.
The suspect then ran away. Police are still searching for him.
