Police on Thursday released images of two suspects wanted for punching a 34-year-old man in Long Island City earlier this summer that left him with a broken jaw.

The suspects, two males, got into a verbal dispute with the victim outside 9-19 40 Ave. on July 14 at around 11:20 a.m., according to police. It isn’t clear what prompted the argument.

The incident, however, turned violent, and the assailants punched the victim in the face, breaking the man’s jaw. The suspects then fled the scene, police said.

The victim was transported to Mt. Sinai Hospital in stable condition, the NYPD said.

Both suspects are described by police as being between 30 and 40 years of age, with dark complexions.The first suspect was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, black and white shorts—with a star design on the side, and white sneakers. He also had a black bag that he was carrying across his chest.The second suspect was last seen wearing a black T-shirt and black pants.Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
