The NYPD is searching for seven people wanted in connection with an assault at a deli in the Bronx.

In just a matter of moments, a verbal argument inside the deli on Castle Hill Avenue in the Parkchester section turned violent, and it was all caught on video.

Eyewitnesses say the drunken brawl started like so many others, over a girl.

But to call it a fight doesn't do justice to the act of savagery that unfolded inside the Bronx bodega over the weekend.

A seven-on-two fight that landed both victims in the hospital, one of them stabbed with a potato chip display.

Victim Cesar Rosado spoke to Eyewitness News from his hospital bed.

"Guy comes in, sucker punches me, next thing you know got two guys holding me, get stabbed," Rosado said.

"They definitely wasn't normal. They all definitely was high on drugs and everything. It wasn't normal. It was kind of scary," said Mohamed Ayedh, a deli employee.

Mohamed Ayedh was working the counter where's he's been standing for 20 years. And that's where early Sunday morning he ducked as the fists started to fly.

A separate fight spilled into the back of the store where one of the victims was down, the man in the blue shirt in the video was rifling through his pockets after he was down.

Then, the other victim tried to escape out the front door, but was chased by two thugs, who pummeled again and again. They rifled through his pockets too. The victim tried to get up only to get sucker punched in the face.

The three victims were transported to the hospital. One was treated and released, and two remain in stable condition.

Two of the suspects are described as Hispanic females, and five suspects are described as black and Hispanic males.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers Website at http://WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or texting their tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
