A 30-year-old man was beaten and robbed inside a bathroom at the Roosevelt Avenue-Broadway subway station in Jackson Heights earlier this month, according to the NYPD.

Three suspects approached the victim just after 7 p.m. June 7 in the men’s room on the mezzanine level near the E and F trains where they punched and kicked the victim and then removed his wallet, which contained $50 in cash, a debit card and a MetroCard, police said.

EMS responded and took the victim to Elmhurst Hospital Center for swelling to an eye, officials said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS
