Cops say these four suspects were responsible for a violent home invasion in Flushing on Aug. 21.

Police released images on Wednesday night of four men wanted in connection with a violent home invasion in Flushing earlier this week.

According to law enforcement sources, the trouble began at around 1:43 a.m. on Aug. 21, when the suspects forced their way inside a home in the vicinity of 147th Street and 41st Avenue and confronted two men, ages 24 and 25.

Once inside, authorities said, one of the suspects displayed a firearm while two others, wielding a baseball bat and a large piece of wood, went on the attack, striking the male victims about the head and body. The four suspects then removed the victims’ cellphones and $400 in cash, then fled in an unknown direction.

Officers from the 109th Precinct and EMS units responded to the incident. The 24-year-old man was taken to a local hospital for treatment of a head laceration, while the 25-year-old man — who had multiple contusions about his body — refused medical attention.

Police described all four home invaders as Asian males. One was observed wearing a white T-shirt, black pants, white socks and black sandals; the second wore a light-colored shirt, shorts and sneakers while brandishing a firearm; the third wore a light-colored shirt, shorts and sneakers while carrying a baseball bat; and the fourth suspect wore a black T-shirt with a white drawing on the back, light shorts, white sneakers and a multi-colored hat while carrying a 2 x 4 wooden stick.

Anyone with information regarding the suspects’ whereabouts that could prove helpful is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
