MIDTOWN — Two subway dancers punched a 65-year-old man before robbing him aboard an F train, the NYPD said.

The attackers were break dancing when they began arguing with the victim on the Brooklyn-bound train at West 47th Street and Sixth Avenue on Oct. 1 around 7:20 p.m., according to police.

They then punched him in the face several times before stealing his watch and grabbing his cellphone, the NYPD said.

It's not clear what sparked the argument.

One of the attackers was described as wearing a red hoodie, blue pants and a black backpack.

The other had on a gray sweatshirt with an American flag on the front and black pants.
