Last month, a man and his wife told police they had been walking to the grocery store when five unidentified males began to verbally harass them from a car. The men followed the couple into the store and allegedly threatened to punch the victim’s wife. When the male victim objected, he was struck by one of the suspects from behind. He was punched in the face and rendered unconscious. The victim lost several teeth and needed medical treatment following the attack.Related Content: 911 call released in Stop & Shop attack
