The police are looking for seven people who attacked and robbed two men at a Long Island City park last month.
The suspects, five men and two women, approached the victims at Rainey Park, located at 34th Avenue and Vernon Boulevard, at around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 16, and asked for the time.
A member of the group then punched one of the victims in the face and the suspects demanded the victims to hand over their possessions.
The first victim, a 28-year-old man whose jaw was broken by the punch, handed over his wallet, a smart watch, cellphone, credit cards, and debit card. The second man, 25, had his iphone and credit cards stripped from him.
The 28-year-old went to hospital to get his jaw treated.
The police released a video of the suspects.
