10 nights ago, 4 criminals hanging around the Island Park station thought they found the perfect mark to rob. However by time the incident was over, 4 criminals disappeared into the middle of the night failing to take one item. The incident started when a man got off a Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) train a few minutes before 10:30 pm.
The man started was walking on the south side of the Island Park station by Austin Boulevard and Long Beach Road when 4 men approached him & proceeded to punch & kick him as they were trying to take the victim’s bag. The victim continued to resist as he got blow after blow. Eventually the 4 criminals ran off into the night, 3 by foot & 1 by scooter while failing to get anything from the victim.
The unidentified victim was taken to Long Beach Hospital where he was treated for ear & eye injuries. Unfortunately Newsday provided no information on the 4 suspects for whatever reason. Hopefully the cops will catch up with these lowlifes soon & put them behind bars.
