NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police are looking for three subway performers who they said attacked a man aboard a train in Queens.

It happened around 7:30 p.m. on a Manhattan-bound F train on May 7.

Police said the suspects had just finished performing a “dance show” aboard the train when they got into some sort of argument with a 28-year-old straphanger.

As the train approached the 21st Street/Queensbridge subway station, the suspects attacked the man, hitting him several times before fleeing the station, police said.

The victim was taken to Cornell Hospital for treatment.

The suspects are described as black men between the ages of 17 and 19, police said.
