Things got a little rowdy at a Family Dollar Store in the Bronx as two people stole items and assaulted an employee.

According to the NYPD, on Oct. 25, a man and a woman entered a Family Dollar at 1227 Webster Ave., and attempted to steal clothing and household goods without paying. However, the situation got ugly when a 29-year-old store clerk intervened.

The clerk tried to recover the items from them, but the man then brandished a box cutter and began slashing him. The duo fled the scene with the property valued at $59. The clerk was taekn to Lincoln Hospital in stable condition with multiple lacerations.

The thieves are described as a dark-skinned male and a dark-skinned female, approximately 30-40 years of age.
