Cops are hunting for three snakes who they said viciously assaulted and robbed a guy on a Cypress Hills street on Nov. 12.
The 23-year-old victim told police the teen brutes approached him near Fulton Street and Nichols Avenue — with one riding up on a scooter — around 10:50 pm and began a conversation, before one of the alleged attackers lifted the guy off his feet and slammed him onto the pavement.
Two of the suspects then started punching and kicking the victim while he was down, and removed his backpack before running off in opposite directions on Nichols Avenue with his cell phone, wallet, debit card, video-game system, and $100 in cash, according to a report.
Surveillance footage of the incident shows an individual began to approach the trio as they attacked the guy, but the person quickly retreated.
Authorities described the suspects as three men between 16 and 18-years-old.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcr
