A man in Bronx holding a gun robbed a deli of a single cigarette, the NYPD said Monday.

The man had walked into the store last Tuesday, January 3, 2017, and started an argument and “physical altercation” with two people in the store that “spilled onto out into the street,” police said.

The man came back inside holding a black and silver gun and demanded a cigarette from the store’s cashier. He took the cigarette and left.

No one was injured, and police are looking for the man shown in the surveillance footage below taken on the night in question. You can see the man brandishing the gun, then taking the one cigarette from the cashier on the left.
