The suspects pictured are wanted for attempting to rob an elderly man in Jamaica on July 11.

Two suspects are on the run after beating and attempting to rob a 79-year-old man in South Richmond Hills in broad daylight earlier this week.

The brutal attack occurred at 1:15 p.m. on July 11 in front of a residence on 127th Street near 102nd Avenue, when the crooks — whom police described as two black men — approached the victim from behind and demanded his necklace, police said.

Law enforcement sources said said that one of the suspects hit the victim in the back of the head with a firearm causing a laceration, and the other perpetrator also began assaulting the victim causing bruising and swelling to the head.

Sources familiar with the investigation said that the suspects then fled eastbound on 102nd Avenue and got into a parked red SUV and drove northbound on 127th Street.

Officers from the 102nd Precinct responded to the scene and EMS transported the victim to Jamaica Hospital for treatment of his injuries, authorities said.

The 102nd Precinct also shared photos of the suspects and getaway vehicle on Twitter.

Anyone with information regarding the perpetrators or vehicle is urged to call the 102nd Precinct Detective Squad at 718-805-3212. All calls are kept confidential.
