(Scroll down for video) Police are looking to arrest and charge a man with assault after he was seen on video throwing a bomb into a Borough Park store, police in New York said.

According to the initial police investigation, the suspect had a discussion with the employee inside the store, which is located at 3901 Fort Hamilton Parkway, early Wednesday.

The employee said that the suspect became angry when the employee refused to lend him beer and cigarettes. About an hour later, the man returned to the store wearing a hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses, threw a bottle into the business and then fled.

The hair and shirt of the 34-year-old store clerk caught fire. Luckily, a coworker grabbed buckets of water and douse the flames.

Police said that the victim suffered minor injuries, and the store did not suffer serious damage.
