By Madina Toure

FLUSHING — Police were looking for four men who allegedly punched and tried to rob a 48-year-old man at a massage parlor in Flushing last month.

Four men entered the parlor at 135-28 40th Road, March 29 at about 11:10 p.m., police said. When they got to the second floor, they tried to take the man’s iPhone 6 cell phone from his front jacket pocket, they said.

The men then allegedly punched the man multiple times, causing a laceration to the left side of his face, and left the location in an unknown direction without the man’s cell phone.

The victim was taken to Flushing Hospital, where he was treated for his injuries.

The investigation was ongoing, according to a police spokeswoman.
