Queens Bodega Owner Severs Would-Be Robber's Finger, Ear

An attempted robbery turned into a bloody battle between a Queens bodega owner and his alleged attacker yesterday afternoon in Woodhaven.

According to police, 27-year-old Omar Rodriguez pulled a gun and demanded money from the owner of a bodega on 77th street in Woodhaven a little before 5 p.m. yesterday. But instead of handing over cash, the store owner – 50-year-old Johan Marten – pulled out a machete.
