BUSHWICK, Brooklyn — A large group of suspects is being looked for after a Dec. 18 robbery, police said Tuesday.

Video released shows the 11 suspects entering a station to board a Manhattan-bound J train; one suspect is seen holding a door open so the other suspects can avoid paying their fare, and others are seen jumping the turnstile.

While riding a J train approaching the Kosciusko Street subway station, the group approached two men, ages 34 and 29. The suspects then punched the men several times in the face, forcibly removing a jacket and umbrella in the process, police said.
