Is it time for panic buttons at bodegas?
Several bodega owners rallied in the Bronx on Tuesday, calling for panic buttons to help them reach police during emergencies.
The rally was held outside Wascar Guerrero’s deli on Shakespeare Avenue. Two weeks ago he chased away a group of teenagers with a metal pipe. Guerrero believes they were trying to rob his store.
“I have to protect me and my customers too," he said.
Guerrero says it took police more than half an hour to respond.
