They were all smiles after leaving a robbery victim in a world of pain.

Cops released video on Monday morning of a trio of robbers who attacked a 30-year-old man inside a bathroom at a train station in Jackson Heights earlier this month.

Law enforcement sources said the robbery occurred at 7:15 p.m. on June 7 in the bathroom of the Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue train station, located on the mezzanine area of the stop at the corner of Broadway and Roosevelt Avenue.

According to police, the three crooks approached the man, then punched and kicked him about the body. They proceeded to remove his wallet, which contained $50 in cash, a debit card and a MetroCard.

Security camera footage taken from a nearby turnstile spotted the suspects, who flashed smiles as they passed through the gate.

The incident was reported to the 110th Precinct and the NYPD Transit Bureau. EMS units brought the robbery victim to a local hospital, where he was treated for eye swelling.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery or the suspects’ whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
