Police are looking for a duo who robbed a man at a Brooklyn subway station early Monday morning.

Authorities say that at 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 10, a 48-year-old man was standing on the J train platform at the Cleveland Street subway station when he was approached by two unknown men. After demanding the victim’s property, one suspect forcibly took the victim’s wallet while the other suspect hit him in the head with a metal crutch.

The suspects then fled the station on foot with the wallet, which is valued at $250. The victim suffered a minor laceration and was taken to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition.

On Aug. 12, the NYPD released photos and video of the suspects, described as men between the ages of 20 and 30 years old, taken prior to the incident:
