Hunt Suspects In Brutal Pizza Attack

Police are searching for four men who assaulted a man and stole a woman’s cell phone during a heated, early-morning dispute inside a Steinway Street pizzeria on June 3rd.

Cops said the group entered into the dispute inside 3 Brothers Pizza at 25-89 Steinway Street at about 4 a.m. on June 3rd.

The dispute turned violent when the four suspects suddenly began punching and kicking the 38-year-old male victim. The brutal attack continued until the man passed out, police said. The suspects then grabbed the phone from the 39-year-old woman and ran from the scene in an unknown direction.

The unidentified man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital of Queens where he was treated for a concussion, head and body trauma and was listed in stable condition.

The suspects, who were captured on surveillance footage, are described as black males in their 20s. One suspect was wearing a skullcap and striped T-shirt. A second suspect was dressed in dark clothing and the two others were wearing baseball caps at the tome of the attack.
