A 23-year-old man was bashed in the head and robbed by a group of thieves as he exited a bodega located on 14th Street in Astoria Tuesday evening.
The victim was coming out of a bodega located at 30-36 14th St. at around 9:35 p.m. on July 26 when he was attacked by three unknown individuals as he was getting on his e-bike, according to police.
One of the suspects pulled him off the bike and threw him to the ground, while another struck him in the head with an unknown object. A third individual hit him with a bottle, while the victim was still on the ground.
Two of the suspects got on the e-bike and rode off with it, while the third individual left the scene on foot.
The victim sustained lacerations to his head and was treated at Mount Sinai Hospital – Queens.
Police describe all three suspects as being in their late teens to early 20s, with medium complexions and thin builds.
One of the suspects was seen wearing a black baseball hat with a shirt wrapped around his neck, a white face mask, a white t-shirt, gray pants, tan boots and a black drawstring bag.
A second individual was reportedly wearing a blue baseball hat, a black t-shirt, black shorts, black sneakers and a black and blue backpack.
Meanwhile, the third suspect was said to be wearing a black balaclava, a white-shirt, black shorts, black and white sneakers, and a black and blue backpack.
The police have released surveillance video of the incident and suspects.

I prefer shopping online and having things delivered. Its convenient and safer. Also the doorman can watch your package if your not home.
Let me guess who did this…. Men! Something’s wrong with our men.
Yes males! Medium complexions and thin builds in this case.
bring back rudy!
This is the new teenaged group of self centered, egotistical, insensitive criminals that are being raised in major cities around the country. The parents are hands off or no shows and the society at large excuses them for their behavior. I see examples of this everyday. They may be caught but will be treated like minors in our lawless system and be let out with a warning to beat and rob someone else.
I do not want to watch or make a big deal of it. Ill watch and react negatively when the suspects are white and the victim is a POC. Rare but does sometimes happen in WQs. This is Cabans District. Crime committed by people of color should be ignored and blamed on systematic racism in Nyc!! Close Rikers Now!
Or jehovah witnesses.
The Trump crowd doesn’t really do subtlety 😂
The Biden crowd really doesn’t have ideas or solutions….just snarky comments and fake tears about Jan 6th….
In a normal city, once arrested, these thugs get 10 years for robbery and assault. In NYC, thanks to the bail reform, they would be released in 24 hours.
NYC haven- No city in US goes from arrest to a 10 year sentence, none. Are you that naive?
Tiffany caban will soon explain that prison should be out of the question and that the victim should enter into some sort of conflict resolution with the criminals.
we need more heroes like Jose Alba.
Nothing new, just check the projects.
Now, now: they are misunderstood youth who need someone to read bedtime stories to them! Maybe Mike Gianaris and Tifany Caban, who do not give a youknowwhat about the victims of crime, can volunteer. They have a real soft spot for criminals.
