One suspect donned a rainbow clown wig and another wore a black do-rag when police said they assaulted a man and attempted to stab him with a screwdriver on a subway train in the Bronx on Saturday.

Police said the two men approached the 45-year-old victim on a D Train at the East 170 Street/Grand Concourse Station about 2:35 p.m.

One suspect, wearing a blue shirt, blue jeans and black do-rag, punched the man in the face. Police said the second suspect, wearing a white tank top, multicolored shorts and a clown wig, tried to stab the victim with a screwdriver.

The suspects then fled in an unknown direction. Police said the victim sustained minor injuries.

Police are still investigating what led up to the assault but said that it appeared to be the result of a prior dispute.

Cops ask anyone with information about the assault to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
