Police are looking for the public’s assistance in locating three suspects who roughed up two men and stole their phones while riding the E train in Queens last weekend.
On Friday, Nov. 25 at 3 a.m., three individuals entered the northbound E train at the Jamaica Center subway station. They approached a 25-year old and 27-year old passenger while the train was in motion and proceeded to attack them and take their iPhones. The suspects fled the scene when the train pulled into the oncoming station.
Both victims were transported to the hospital for treatment of their injuries. The 25-year old victim suffered a fractured eye socket, a broken nose and contusions while the 27-year old victim had a lacerated lip, swelling and contusions.
The suspects are described as black males, aged 19 to 22-years old. Two of the three suspects are pictured below:
