Police have released photos of a group of five suspects who allegedly mugged a man aboard a 7 train in Woodside late last month.

The suspects — four males and one female — were riding the Flushing-bound train at around 3:55 a.m. on Aug. 27 as it approached the 61st Street-Woodside station, according to police.

The group got into a verbal dispute with the 26-year-old victim, which turned violent. The group of suspects punched and kicked the victim throughout the body before stealing his cellphone. They then fled the train at the stop to parts unknown.

The victim refused medical attention.

Police on Monday, Sept. 25, released images of the five assailants wanted for questioning. The NYPD did not provide a description of the suspects.

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

There have been 195 robberies in the 108th Precinct so far this year, up 35.4% compared to the same time last year, according to police data.

Sen. Ramos delivers potential death blow to Mets owner’s dream of a casino alongside Citi Field

State Senator Jessica Ramos dealt a serious blow Tuesday to New York Mets owner Steve Cohen’s dream of building a massive casino and entertainment complex on the parking lot adjoining Citi Field where Shea Stadium once stood.

Ramos announced she would not support the $8 billion Metropolitan Park proposal, rejecting major pressure from her colleagues in government, including Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and community leaders from nearby neighborhoods, who urged her to support permitted use legislation that would be required to build the complex on state-owned public parkland.
