Police from the 105th Precinct in Queens Village are still looking for three suspects who beat up a 28-year-old man in Cambria Heights and threatened to shoot him in his Jeep before ending the victim’s terrifying ordeal in Rockaway Beach.

The incident began near the Farmbria Food Center at Linden Boulevard and 218th Street in Cambria Heights on the evening of Monday, May 22, when the victim was hanging with the three men when they became involved in an argument, police said. Two of the suspects turned on the man and punched him multiple times in his head. All three of the assailants jumped into the victim’s Jeep Wrangler, while he got into the back seat instead of running away.

One of the suspects simulated having a firearm pointed at him as they drove to a location in the vicinity of Rockaway Beach Boulevard and Beach 96th Street, police said. When they arrived at the Rockaway Beach location, the victim went into the home to retrieve cash for his attackers, but he was able to lock himself inside a room and his assailants drove off in his Jeep in an unknown direction, police said, adding that the victim sustained injuries to his face during the beating.

Rockaway’s piping plovers among endangered species commemorated on U.S. Postal Service stamps

A day before the city reopened nearly 70 blocks of public beaches along the Rockaway peninsula for the Memorial Day weekend, the U.S. Postal Service and National Park Service hosted a special event at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in Broad Channel to honor the piping plover, an endangered shorebird featured on new stamps.

In attendance were members of the NYC Plover Project, a nonprofit with more than 250 volunteers, who have been on the beaches since March preparing for the summer swim season, who celebrated the newly released stamp sheet commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act.
