Cops are looking for a group of people who recently attacked a man in his car and stole his property in Flushing.

According to police, at 9:55 p.m. on Sept. 7, a 57-year-old man was sitting in his 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven, located in the vicinity of 162nd Street and 46th Avenue, when his vehicle was approached by three unknown men.

Authorities said the suspects proceeded to throw a rock at the victim’s car, breaking the driver’s side window in the process.

The bandits then punched the victim in the face and took his bag, which contained $300 in cash as well as some SIM cards. Law enforcement sources said the crooks then fled inside a red SUV that was last seen traveling northbound on 161st Street.

On Sept. 17, the 109th Precinct tweeted out images of the assailants:
