The police are looking for three suspects who allegedly punched, kicked and robbed a 34-year-old man on a Sunnyside street corner last week.
The victim was walking on the corner of Greenpoint Avenue and 48th Avenue at around 11:20 p.m. on Monday, March 11, when the suspects approached him and began to yell at him.
Video then shows one of the men throwing a sucker punch, knocking the man to the ground. The suspects then kicked the victim and took his wallet, which contained $600, an iPhone X and Apple earpods, before fleeing in an unknown direction, according to police.
The victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital where he was treated for bruises to the head and body.
The suspects are described as black and in their twenties. One of the men had long braids, white jacket and blue jeans.
The police have released photos and video of the suspects taken near the incident.
