Three thugs beat the crap out of a 14-year-old Bronx boy Monday afternoon (before stealing his sneakers and sunglasses) and now police need your help in tracking them down.
According to police, the victim was waiting for the elevator at his Eastchester apartment about 2:20 p.m. Monday, when the three suspects surrounded him.
Like a coward, one of the creeps hit the boy from behind — his buddies then joined in on the beating, punching and kicking the boy before stealing his sunglasses and shoes.
The boy was taken to Jacobi Hospital where he was treated and released.
The three suspects are described as being between 16 and 20 years old. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
