A 63-year-old man was beaten over the head with a gun and robbed by two suspects at a Forest Hills subway station Wednesday.

The victim was exiting the 75th Avenue subway station at around 8 p.m. when the two perpetrators approached him and brandished a handgun, according to police.

One of the suspects struck the straphanger multiple times in the head before the pair stole the victim’s watch, jewelry, and around $1,000 cash, police said.

They then fled into the station, cops said.

The victim was transported to Queens General Hospital in stable condition with cuts to his head, police said.

No arrests have been made in regard to the incident.

Another lucky situation, imagine if the victim had been “Asian” the term reserved for Chinese. Then it would have been a hate crime. Oh well, no Asian, no biggie.
