BROOKLYN — The man whose 16-month-old son, Antiq Hennis, was shot and killed in his stroller in Brownsville last month is now wanted in connection with a subway mugging, according to police.
Anthony Hennis, 22, and his brother Ammany Hennis, 20, threatened a commuter while they were riding on a 3 train approaching the Saratoga Avenue station about 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, according to the NYPD.
The rider gave up his watch and then either Anthony or Ammany punched the victim in the face, cops said.
The victim suffered minor injuries, police said.
Anthony Hennis made the news in early September when a gunman shot Antiq in the skull as he pushed him in a stroller near the intersection Livonia Avenue and Bristol Street.
Hennis was uncooperative with police, but authorities eventually arrested alleged triggerman Daquan Breland, 23, and Daquan Wright, 19, who handed Breland the gun, according to court papers.
Police describe Anthony Hennis as 6 feet, 2 inches tall and 150 pounds with black hair and brown eyes, according to police. His brother Ammany is also described as 6-foot-2 with black hair and brown eyes, police said.
