CROWN HEIGHTS — Police are looking for two teenagers who pushed a 16-year-old girl onto the subway tracks, then robbed her Sunday night.

Police said the suspects came up to the girl on the platform for the 3 and 4 trains at Utica Avenue station on Eastern Parkway just after 8 p.m. on Sunday and pushed her onto the southbound tracks.

The pair then jumped down into the track bed with her, punched and kicked her and took her coat, $20 and her school I.D. card.

The two suspects then fled the Crown Heights station. The victim was taken to Kingsbrook Jewish Hospital for treatment of minor injuries, police said.

No trains entered the station at the time of the assault, an MTA official said, and train service was not disrupted by the incident.

The suspects have not been identified in the assault and the investigation is ongoing, police said.

The incident was first reported by the New York Daily News.
