NEW YORK CITY — Two men slugged a straphanger in the DeKalb Avenue subway station in Bushwick before running off with his wallet Saturday, cops said.
The 18-year-old victim was on the station's staircase about 10:45 a.m. when the suspects punched him in the face and threw him down, according to the NYPD.
The suspects ran off with the straphanger's wallet, police said.
The attack left the victim's hands and knees bloodied, but the injuries were considered minor, cops said.
Police believe the both suspects are in their late teens and between 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, they said.
