Police are searching for the dastardly duo who — along with another man who cops already cuffed and charged — allegedly robbed and assaulted two men in Sunset Park on April 21.

Cops say the group stole unknown items from the men after allegedly punching them — causing cuts, pain, and swelling to their faces, at Fourth Avenue and 36th Street shortly after 4 a.m.

The trio then fled on foot in different directions, according to police, who added that paramedics transported the victims to Lutheran Medical Center.

Officers arrested one of the three men soon after, when they allegedly found him in a Fifth Avenue backyard between 33rd and 34th streets, according to police, who added that they slapped him with robbery, assault, and criminal trespassing charges.

Police describe the two outstanding suspects as being 20-to-30-years-old.

Tips leading to an arrest can result in rewards up to $2,500 through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program. The public can phone tips in at (800) 577-8477, log into the Crime Stoppers website at, tweet @NYPDTips, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.

Reasonable discourse

Ok, be on the look out for two mean around 20-30 years old. (I guess the race is a given?)

This paper has become politically correct to an extreme. How about using common sense?

What I am getting at is that it was the jigaboos or spix.
