Cops are looking for a group of suspects who attacked two people in Brooklyn last week.

According to police, at 2:10 a.m. on June 21, two men, aged 45 and 41 years old, were outside of a residence on Hancock Street near Wilson Avenue when they were approached by six unknown individuals, who asked them for a beer. The suspects then proceeded to assault the victims, hitting the 45-year-old victim in the head with a metal chair and hitting the 41-year-old man with a metal rod.

The suspects then fled the scene in an unknown direction. The victims were taken to NYC Health & Hospitals/Kings County in stable condition for non-life-threatening injuries.

On June 25, the NYPD released photos and video of the suspects:
