Authorities in Newark are seeking a man accused of threatening the lives of grocery store workers who told him he couldn't come in without a face mask amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The man, pictured above, became angry when workers of Brother Grocery Deli on 18th Avenue banned him from coming in without a face mask around 2 p.m. Monday, Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose said.
He threatened the workers' lives before fleeing eastbound on 18th Avenue, then north onto West End Avenue, Ambrose said.
