Police are hunting three men suspected in a brutal Broadway beatdown on May 21, including one guy who hurled bottles at the victim — while holding a baby!

The 28-year-old victim told police he was with his girlfriend near Debevoise Street at 5 p.m., when his beau’s ex-boyfriend and two other men attacked.

The woman’s ex slashed the victim’s neck with a blade, while his pal attacked him from behind, cutting up his back, cops said.

Meanwhile, a third suspect outrageously chucked a bottle at the victim’s head with one hand, while toting a baby with the other, police said.

Paramedics rushed to the scene after the victim’s attackers fled, and rushed the man to Kings County Hospital for treatment, according to authorities.

Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect up to a $2,500 reward through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program. The public can phone their tips to (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

K. from ArKady says:
Dear Kevin, While I understand that the Brooklyn Paper may not be up on the latest esoteric nomenclature such as Honchex, I do expect better clarity. Was the victim gay or straight? I can't tell from paragraph two and three. oh Merde.

K. from ArKady, why so bi-curious? Maybe get a grindr account, I’m on there.

Do you know the difference between a spell checker and a proof reader? Neither does the BP.

HONEY Pooter from Williamsburg says:
Will the baby be tried as an adult, due to the severity of the crime? No one can deny that it is a criminal accomplice!

K from Arkady - the baby is gay, not the man.
