CLINTON HILL – The NYPD is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the two men seen in the below photos and video in connection to a robbery at the Clinton/Washington Ave A/C subway station earlier this month.


At approximately 10:50am on Thursday, August 1, police say a 65-year-old man was walking down the stairs inside the subway station when one of the suspects punched him in the back of the head, causing him to fall down the stairs and onto the floor of the station’s mezzanine.

The victim was knocked unconscious. The two suspects took his backpack which contained his wallet, headphones, a watch, a bluetooth speaker, and a cell phone. The pair then fled the station in an unknown direction.


EMS transported the victim to NY-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital in serious but stable condition. He suffered a fracture to his jaw, two broken ribs, and a cut to the back of the head.
