Police are looking for a group of four behind a savage beating in broad daylight on Westchester Avenue earlier this month.
A 37-year-old man was walking home within the confines of the 41st Precinct when the group confronted him at about 2:20 p.m. on Sunday, May 10, according to the NYPD.
One of the men threw a haymaker punch to the victim’s face, causing him to fall on the ground as the others joined in on beating the man without cease, only to mug him for his iPhone and chain afterwards, police said.
The victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital, where he was treated for his injuries.
Meanwhile, the suspects fled westbound on East 165th Street, NYPD reports indicate.
Police released this footage and images 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).
