Police are looking for four suspects who viciously assaulted a man in Jackson Heights earlier this month.

At approximately 8:20 p.m. on May 19, four men attacked a 24-year-old at the intersection of 32nd Avenue and 74th Street. The suspects stabbed the victim with a knife and repeatedly struck him with a tire iron and cane in the head and body, police said. The men fled eastbound on 32nd Avenue.

The victim suffered lacerations to his back and head and was transported to Elmhurst Hospital in critical but stable condition.

All four suspects were described by police as Hispanic males between 16 and 24 years of age, standing between 5 foot 5 inches and 5 foot 8 inches tall, with slim builds.

One suspect was last seen wearing a black sweater with white graphics on the front, blue jeans and black and white sneakers. A second perpetrator wore a red t-shirt, blue jeans and red sneakers.

The third assailant was last observed wearing a black hooded sweater and black pants, and the fourth suspect wore a black hooded sweater and light blue jeans.

Anyone with information in regards 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 or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
