The NYPD on Thursday, Sept. 1 released new surveillance photos of two suspects who are being sought in a brutal attack near the Queensbridge North Houses in Long Island City in mid-July that left a man with a broken jaw.
The unprovoked assault began as a verbal dispute that escalated to violence when two men began punching the victim in the face with closed fists, police said. The two men ran off in an unknown direction and the victim was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital in Astoria in stable condition with a fractured jaw.
The two suspects are between 30 to 40 years of age with dark complexions. One wore a white T-shirt, white and black shorts with a star design on the side, white sneakers and had a black bag slung over his chest. The second man wore a black T-shirt and black pants.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
