A group of men walked into a Flushing massage parlor last month and punched a man repeatedly in a failed robbery, cops said.
The incident happened at 135-28 40th Rd., near Main Street just after 11 p.m. on March 29.
After entering the massage parlor and heading to the second floor, the four suspects came up to the 48-year-old victim and tried to take his iPhone 6 from his front jacket pocket, police said. They then punched the victim several times, causing a laceration to the left side of his face.
The suspects fled on foot in an unknown direction without the victim’s property, cops said.
The victim was taken to Flushing Hospital, where he was treated for his injuries.
