SOUTH OZONE PARK — Three men attacked a customer in a Queens hookah bar earlier this month, police said.
The men got into a dispute with an unidentified 17-year-old inside Aladdin Hookah Bar at 109-08 Liberty Avenue about 6:20 p.m. on June 10, according to the NYPD.
The group kicked and punched the victim repeatedly, before allegedly hitting him in the head with a metal object.
The 17-year-old suffered a laceration to his head and was treated at Jamaica Hospital.
"He was bleeding from his head," manager Amanpreet Singh said.
Singh added that he had never seen the three suspects in the hookah bar before and did not know what sparked the violence.
The attackers were believed to be 18 to 25 years old, police said.
