Police are looking for three men and one woman who they say pistol-whipped a man before robbing him in Long Island City this past summer.

The 22-year-old man was exiting an apartment on 12th Street about 2:30 a.m. on June 28 when the four suspects surrounded him and demanded his property, cops said. Two of the male suspects took out guns, and one of them pistol-whipped the victim. The suspects then stole the man’s jewelry, including a black and gold G-Shock watch, an Apple iPhone and credit cards.

The victim suffered fractured a bone in his face during the attack and was treated at an area hospital, police said.
