Detectives in the Bronx are looking for the three men responsible for a brutal beating caught on camera earlier this month.

Police said the terrible trio attacked the man after getting into a conversation with him in front of a store at 870 Prospect Ave. in Longwood at about 9 a.m. on Aug. 4.

According to law enforcement sources, two of the three perpetrators initiated the conversation with the 34-year-old male victim, but the situation quickly disintegrated into violence. 

Cops said the two suspects began punching the man about the body. One of the perpetrators then struck him with a wrench, while the other pulled out a cutting instrument and slashed the victim in the arm.

The third suspect, authorities said, then joined the fray and punched the victim from behind, knocking him to the ground. He then stomped on the man for good measure.

After knocking the man unconscious, cops said, the three suspects fled the scene in an unknown direction.

Officers from the 41st Precinct responded to the attack. EMS brought the victim to a local hospital for treatment of injuries not considered life-threatening.

Anyone with information regarding the suspects’ whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA). You can also submit tips online at nypdcrimestoppers.com, or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
