The police are looking for four suspects who used a cane and a stick to beat a 15-year-old boy outside a deli by Woodside Houses Monday in what cops are calling a gang assault.

The four suspects, all teenage males, approached the victim at around 4:15 p.m. outside Bread & Butter Deli & Grill, located at 48-02 Broadway, and began attacking him, cops said. The deli is about a block away from the NYCHA Woodside Houses complex.

One of the suspects allegedly hit the victim with a cane while another assailant used a stick to strike the 15-year-old, police said.

The group then fled the scene in a white Mazda SUV southbound on 48th Street, police said.

The victim was transported to NYC Health & Hospitals/Harlem in stable condition, the NYPD said.

The 15-year-old told police that he did not know the assailants, cops said.

During the alleged attack, the suspects made a statement to the victim saying that they had been in a dispute with one of his friends, police said. It is unclear what the quarrel was about.

The police released images of the four teens wanted for questioning.

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.

Any comment from Julie Won? Or does she only voice concern when a white man commits a hate crime against an Asian in another state.

Once again, thank you Van Bramer, Won, Caban, Generis, etc. They would probably say the 4 perpetrators are just misunderstood, even if caught.

They will say that the young men didn’t mean it.
The Hispanic crime wave continues to go on because no politician will do anything for the fact that they are minorities. My brother Jim is right, white people don’t stand a chance in nyc anymore. They will be extinct in another 10 years .

Too close to home! I used to live around here. I was always aware of the Woodside Houses and the dangerous people who live there – all at taxpayer expense I might add – but this is too much. The 114th Precinct has its hands full.

Where are the parents?

If the perps are in public housing, they and their families should be thrown out for this type of criminal behavior.
