Manhunt for suspect who threw rock at ice cream shop worker's head

EAST VILLAGE, Manhattan (WABC) -- Police are searching for a man who bashed an ice cream shop worker with a rock.

It happened at Van Leeuwen Ice Cream Shop in the East Village last month. The suspect placed an order, then threw a rock at a worker's head, demanding money.

The suspect left empty-handed, and police believe he immediately boarded an M2 bus just blocks away.

The man is a suspect in three other robberies in Manhattan over the last month.
