The NYPD is looking for two men who savagely assaulted and robbed a man in the lobby of an apartment building last month.

According to law enforcement, on Oct. 24, a 36-year-old man was standing in the lobby of his apartment building at Lowerre Place and East 226 Street, when suddenly two men forced their way inside. From there, the situation got dicey.

Once inside they attacked the resident and continually punched and kicked him and stole his Samsung Galaxy cellphone and wallet, which had $500. The thieves fled the scene and the victim suffered pain and bruising to his head and body, a laceration to his lip and an avulsed tooth. He later reported the incident to police and is in stable condition, at NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/ or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
