Police on Thursday released images of two suspects wanted for punching a 34-year-old man in Long Island City earlier this summer that left him with a broken jaw.

The suspects, two males, got into a verbal dispute with the victim outside 9-19 40 Ave. on July 14 at around 11:20 a.m., according to police. It isn’t clear what prompted the argument.

The victim was transported to Mt. Sinai Hospital in stable condition, the NYPD said.
