Police are looking for several men that assaulted a senior man near 169th Street in the south Bronx earlier this month.

A 68-year-old man reportedly became engaged in a verbal dispute with the men in front of a building on Union Avenue at about 1:50 a.m. on Friday, May 8.

The dispute quickly escalated to a physical altercation as the men proceeded to punch the victim multiple times in his head, eye, and about his body before they fled in unknown direction, according to NYPD reports.

The NYPD also released this footage of the suspects.

Anyone with information in regard to the identities of the males is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
