QUEENSBRIDGE — Cops are looking for three subway performers they say assaulted a man on an F Train in Long Island City earlier this month.

The victim, a 28-year-old man, was riding a Manhattan-bound train in Queens around 7:20 p.m. on May 7 when he got into an argument with three "dance show" train performers, according to cops.

Cops say the three suspects attacked the man, striking him on the head and body, as the train approached the 21 Street/Queensbridge Station. The victim was taken to New York Hospital for treatment.

The suspects, caught on video surveillance footage, are described as between 17 and 19 years old.
