Both men fled west bound on Avenue L toward East 4th Street on foot, according to police. The 34-year-old driver didn’t suffer any serious injuries.

Police describe the first suspect as Black, 6’0”, 180 lbs., in his 20’s and was wearing a blue hat. The second suspect is also Black, 6’0”, 240 lbs., in his 40’s.
