July 4, 2016

harlem deliA man looking for “loosies” attacked a Harlem deli owner — who fought back and beat him into critical condition with a stick, officials said Saturday.

Jermaine Nobles, 40, barreled into the West Harlem Deli on Fifth Ave. near W. 126th St. demanding a single cigarette from the 58-year-old clerk Thursday night, police sources said.

When told that the store didn’t sell loosies, an enraged Nobles threw a 12-ounce bottle of beer, narrowly missing the clerk.

Nobles then vaulted the counter and grabbed a knife. The grocer grabbed a stick and hit Nobles over the head with it until the invader fled.

A bloodied Nobles tried to run into a nearby shelter, but employees wouldn’t let him inside and called police, who took him into custody.

Nobles was taken to an area hospital with bleeding on the brain. He was charged with robbery, assault, criminal mischief, weapon possession, menacing and harassment, officials said.
