The NYPD is looking for two men who allegedly attacked an 89-year-old man in Jackson Heights Saturday afternoon, stealing a set of keys.

The two suspects approached the victim at the corner of 83rd Street and 35th Avenue just before 5 p.m. and knocked the senior citizen to the ground, police said. The suspects grabbed the man’s keys and fled.

The victim received medical treatment for bruising and is in stable condition, according to the NYPD. Surveillance video captured the suspects before the attack.

One suspect was last seen wearing a blue baseball cap with stars, and a tattoo on the back of his neck. The other suspect had light skin, wearing camouflage pants and a black du-rag.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
