The police are looking for four suspects who used a cane and a stick to beat a 15-year-old boy outside a deli in Astoria Monday.

The four suspects, all teenage males, approached the victim at around 4:15 p.m. outside Bread & Butter Deli & Grill, located at 48-02 Broadway, and began attacking him, cops said.

One of the suspects allegedly hit the victim with a cane while another assailant used a stick to strike the 15-year-old, police said.

The group then fled the scene in a white Mazda SUV southbound on 48th Street, police said.

The victim was transported to NYC Health & Hospitals/Harlem in stable condition, the NYPD said.

The 15-year-old told police that he did not know the assailants, cops said.

During the alleged attack, the suspects made a statement to the victim saying that they had been in a dispute with one of his friends, police said. It is unclear what the quarrel was about.

The police released images of the four teens wanted for questioning.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
