The NYPD is looking for three men who robbed and assaulted a man in Astoria last month.

On Saturday, Oct. 3, around 12:30 a.m., a 58-year-old man was outside near Astoria Boulevard and 22nd Street when he was approached by three unidentified men, according to the NYPD.

The crook began to punch and kick the man before reaching into his pocket and stealing his cellphone, cops said.
