NYC: Cops hunt Queens attackers who beat, choked pair into unconsciousness

Cops are hunting four attackers who they say pummeled and choked a man and woman during a squabble in Queens, causing both to pass out. 

The suspects were arguing with the victims, a 21-year-old man and a 39-year-old woman, at the corner of Astoria Boulevard and 41st Street in Astoria around 11:30 p.m. Oct. 30 when things turned physical, cops said late Thursday. 

Three of the suspects began to punch, kick and choke the man until he fell unconscious, according to police. 

The fourth suspect shoved the woman against a parked car and choked her until she too blacked out, authorities said. 

Both victims were taken to Astoria General Hospital in stable condition — both with lacerations to their necks, and the man with bruises all over his body.

Cops did not have any details on the dispute that led to the assault.
