Police have released images of a group of four suspects they say are wanted for randomly assaulting two men in the East Village last week — causing multiple injuries.
On March 11 at about 2:20 a.m. a 26-year-old and 23-year-old victims were walking near the vicinity of 119 East 11th St. when they were approached by the group of four men, who then assaulted them with bottles and punched them, according to authorities.
The 26-year-old man sustained a broken orbital bone in his head, police said, and the 23-year-old man sustained a broken orbital bone, broken jaw, and a cut to the face that required stitches.
No property was taken during the attack and both victims were treated at Bellevue Hospital.
Police describe the first suspect as last seen wearing a white t-shirt and light colored pants with a dark belt. The second suspect was seen wearing a red baseball hat with a black rim, a red sleeveless jacket with a gray hoodie, t-shirt with black and white stripes and stars, a pink bracelet on his right wrist and jeans.
The third individual had a goatee and was wearing a Yankee baseball cap, and a black t-shirt with a gold design and white letters on the front and black and white stripes on the sleeve, police said. The final member of the group was seen wearing a blue baseball hat, a dark jacket, white shirt and was holding a cellphone to his right ear.
