Police are on the hunt for three brutes who beat a man unconscious inside the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center subway station on July 27.

The victim, 34, told cops he was arguing with three fiends on the Manhattan-bound platform at the station near Flatbush Avenue at 10:10 p.m., when the three guys lunged at him, savagely pummeling his face, and knocking him out cold.

The crooks fled following the brutal assault, while the man checked himself into a New Jersey medical center after regaining consciousness, where doctors treated him for facial fractures he sustained in the attack, cops said.

Police recovered surveillance footage from inside the subway station of the victim’s alleged attackers, and are asking the public’s help in identifying the three suspects.

Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect up to a $2,500 reward through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program. The public can phone their tips to (800) 577-8477, log into the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, tweet @NYPDTips, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.

These liberals who decry racism and make excuses for people are too stupid to create their own screen name. Makes them look stupid and mentally ill.

These racist conservatives are too ashamed to use their real names when they post racist comments. Let’s dox them and post their identity so everyone knows what a POS they really are.
