Hennis, who has a lengthy rap sheet and is a suspected gang member, notably did not cooperate with the police after 16-month-old Antiq Hennis was shot to death in Brownsville while crossing the street with him. Cops believe the 22-year-old Hennis was the intended target at the time.
Now, police say he and an accomplice held up a 19-year-old boy on the 3 train in Brooklyn early Thursday morning. Hennis and another man in his 20s allegedly started harassing the teenager on the southbound train around 1:30 a.m., and when the victim's pregnant sister tried to intervene, he allegedly threatened to slap her in the face. Authorities say Hennis took the 19-year-old's watch and punched him in the face before fleeing when the train arrived at the Saratoga Avenue station in Brownsville; a passenger allegedly recognized Hennis from last month's news reports and cops say the victim identified him from police photos.
Daquan Breland, the 23-year-old Brownsville man charged with Antiq's second-degree murder, and his alleged accomplice, 19-year-old Daquan Wright, have both pleaded not guilty to their charges.
