Cops are looking for three men who beat and robbed a man on a Sunnyside street corner last week.

According to police, at 11:20 p.m. on March 11, a 34-year-old man was walking on the corner of Greenpoint Avenue and 48th Avenue when three men approached him and began to yell at him. The suspects then began to punch and kick the victim, knocking him to the ground.

The crooks then took the victim’s wallet, which contained $600, an iPhone X and Apple AirPods before fleeing the scene in an unknown direction. The victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center, where he was treated for bruises to his head and body.

Police released surveillance video of the attack:
