Cops are looking for a duo who pulled a man from his car and beat him up in the Bronx last month.

According to police, at 7:40 p.m. on Jan. 9, a 36-year-old man was parking in front of a residence on Purdy Street near St. Raymond Avenue when he was approached by two unknown men who exited their own vehicle. The suspects proceeded to pull the victim from his car and punched him several times throughout the face and body.

The suspects then fled the scene in their double-parked vehicle. The victim suffered bruising and lacerations and was taken to NYC Health and Hospitals/Jacobi for treatment.

On Feb. 7, the NYPD released video of the suspects taken from the scene:

The suspects are described as Hispanic men between the ages of 20 and 30 years old. They were both last seen wearing all dark clothing.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the males is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website¬†or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.
