Two suspects who took part in a violent robbery and assault of a man in Corona earlier this month remain at large.

According to police, at 5:40 p.m. on Aug. 14, a 30-year-old man was exiting his car, which was parked in the vicinity of 109th Street and Northern Boulevard, when his backpack hit another car. The occupants of the other car, two men and a woman, then chased the victim and threw him to the ground.

The suspects proceeded to strike the victim multiple times with a metal pipe and a bat before grabbing his backpack. The crooks then took the victim’s wallet, which had cash inside, and his cellphone and threw the backpack back at him.

The group then fled the scene in a Honda Odyssey. The victim sustained substantial head pain as a result of the incident.

Following an ongoing investigation, one of the assailants, who was identified as 41-year-old Henry Corona, was arrested and charged with robbery. The remaining two suspects, who have been identified as Jonattan Suero and Marialys Almonte, remain at large.

The 115th Precinct released the following images of the suspects on their Twitter account:
