Two men were robbed by a group of teens after they fell asleep on a 7 train in Long Island City early Wednesday morning.

The victims, aged 26 and 30, had fallen asleep while riding southbound together on the train as it approached the Queensboro Plaza subway station at around 3:45 a.m., according to the police.

The pair woke up when the 30-year-old found himself trapped in a headlock by one of the teens. The alleged muggers then stole his wallet and cell phone before swiping a pair of sunglasses from the younger man.

The victims fled the train when it pulled into the Queensboro Plaza subway station while the suspects remained on board. It is unclear where the suspects exited.

Police said there were four teens that were part of the group.

No arrests have been made and no injuries were reported.
