The police are looking for two men who were doing back flips on an “E” train while it was traveling through Queens, before getting into a dispute with a passenger and punching the victim in the mouth.
The two suspects were doing a back flip performance on the Manhattan-bound train at about 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 12, when one of the performers kicked a 28-year-old man on the leg during their act.
The victim got into a dispute with the two men before one of them punched him in the mouth. The performers fled in an unknown direction. The victim sustained minor injuries.
The suspects are both described as being between 25 to 28 years of age. One of the men is white, approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall and 170 pounds, with brown eyes and a brown goatee. He was last seen wearing a black hat, black hooded sweatshirt, gray pants and white shoes.
The second man is described as black, approximately 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall and approximately 170 pounds. He has long black dreads and a black goatee.
The police have released video of the suspects.
