NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- The NYPD is looking for a man who they say snapped while waiting for his sandwich to be made at a Brooklyn deli last month.

It happened at the Hi Mango Natural Market on Flushing Avenue back on Nov. 25.

The suspect allegedly attacked a 28-year-old deli worker because he was taking too long to make his breakfast sandwich.

Video released by police shows the man slamming his hand on the counter and screaming at the worker.

"Make my cinnamon toasted raisin bagel with bacon, egg and cheese, right now! Right f-----g now!" the man yells. "Make my s--t right now. I don't want to listen."

Police said he then threw merchandise at the worker's head and torso.

The worker said he suffered bruising and swelling after the attack. He told the New York Post that he feared for his life and thought the man would shoot and kill him.
