Two men violently robbed a straphanger of his cellphone inside the Flushing Avenue station earlier this month.
The pair struck a 33-year-old man in the head with an unknown object as he walked up the stairs to the station on Sunday, Dec. 15 at 2:30 a.m. They then grabbed his cell phone and fled, police said.
The victim became lightheaded from the attack and was taken to an area hospital to be treated for a laceration to the head, according to police.
