Police are asking for the public’s help identifying one of two men wanted for assaulting and robbing a victim inside of a residence in Flushing last year.

Law enforcement agents said the robbery took place at about 1:13 a.m. on Nov. 22 inside a home on Ash Avenue near Magnolia Place.

The day before the robbery, according to sources familiar with the investigation, the 23-year-old male victim victim had borrowed $15,000 in cash from a friend for reasons not yet known to police. The friend then arranged for an unidentified individual to meet with the victim at the Ash Avenue location.

But once inside the residence on Nov. 22, police said, the unidentified individual and a second suspect went on the attack, punching the victim about the body and striking him with a crowbar. They then took the bag containing the $15,000 in borrowed cash, then fled the location.

One of the two assailants was apprehended at the scene by 109th Precinct officers; his identity was not disclosed, as the case is sealed pending an investigation.

The suspect who remains at large is described as an Asian male, 20 to 30 years old, 5 foot 8 inches. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, black jeans, black sneakers and a black baseball cap with a light colored patch.

A photo of the suspect can be seen below.
