The police released video footage of three men today wanted for a string of robberies and assaults that have taken place in Sunnyside this month.
The first attack took place at around 10:50 p.m. on Saturday, March 9, when the men sprayed ‘silly string’ in the face of a 62-year-old man in front of 40-15 Queens Blvd.(Burger King), before striking him multiple times in the head and back with a belt. The victim was bruised but refused medical attention, police said.
The following Monday, March 11, one of the suspects sucker-punched a 34-year-old man on the corner of Greenpoint and 48th Avenues at around 11:20 p.m. The men then kicked the victim while he was on the ground and took $600, an iPhone X and Apple earpods before fleeing. The victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center where he was treated for bruises to his head and body.
