Police released on Sunday images and video of three suspects wanted for a recent home invasion in south Queens in which they assaulted a 59-year-old man with a meat cleaver.

Law enforcement sources said the robbery took place at 1:20 p.m. on April 23 inside a home in the vicinity of Farmers Boulevard and 116th Avenue in St. Albans, within the confines of the 113th Precinct.

According to authorities, the perpetrators entered the home and confronted two men, one who is 59 and the other is 62. Sources familiar with the investigation said one of the robbers asked, “Where is the money?”

As the 59-year-old man attempted to flee, police said, one of the suspects attacked him with a cleaver, slashing his face and hands. EMS later transported the victim to Montefiore Medical Center, where he was treated for injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

The 62-year-old man was able to flee the scene, and the suspects ran out of the location shortly thereafter, authorities noted.
