PARKCHESTER, The Bronx — Cops are searching for the suspects who viciously attacked a man while shouting “ISIS, ISIS”—an incident the NYPD is investigating as a hate crime.

Mujibur Rahman, 43, a Bangladeshi Muslim, was picking up his 9-year-old niece from school on Watson Avenue and Pugsley Avenue around 5:30 Friday, when the two men attacked him.

They punched him in the head and knocked him onto the ground where they kicked him several times, police sources said.

He was taken to Jacobi Hospital to be treated for bruising to his head and face, cops said.
