Cops are looking for a duo who violently attacked a man in Ozone Park with hardware and took off with his car.

According to police, at 6:25 p.m. on Jan. 16, a 43-year-old man was walking in the vicinity of 92nd Street and Liberty Avenue when he was approached by two men who exited a 2006 BMW. The suspects proceeded to assault the victim about the head and body with bolt cutters and an unknown wooden object.

The suspects then took the victim’s iPhone and his keys, and ultimately fled the location in the victim’s mini van. Police say that the suspects also displayed a firearm before fleeing the scene.
