Cops are looking for an armed trio who attacked a man in Flushing last month and took off with his wallet.

According to police, at 1 a.m. on Sept. 16 a 40-year-old man was in the vicinity of Kissena Boulevard and 59th Avenue when he was approached from behind by three unknown men. Two of the men pulled out guns and demanded property from the victim.

One of the armed suspects then hit the victim in the face with his gun, law enforcement sources noted, causing the victim to fall to the ground. The third man, who did not have a weapon, took the victim’s wallet.

The victim was taken to an area hospital where he was treated for his injuries.

The 109th Precinct tweeted out the following images of one of the suspects involved:

No arrests have been made at this time. The investigation is ongoing.
