THE BRONX - A Baychester deli worker says he thwarted an attempted armed robbery.

Ahmed Hussein scared off two would-be robbers at the Finest Deli Thursday night.

Police say two masked men entered the deli on Gun Hill Road around 11 p.m. Surveillance video shows a suspect waving a gun at the deli worker and telling him to turn over money.

The victim reached for the gun and grabbed one of the suspects' hand. A shot was fired, and the two men fled empty-handed.

Hussein wasn’t hurt. He says he is no hero and that he is just a thankful and religious man.
