Police are looking for a trio of subway dancers who allegedly assaulted a passenger aboard a train in Queens.

The 28-year-old victim was on a Manhattan bound F train around 7:20 p.m. on May 7 when he got into a verbal argument with three men police describe as “dance show train performers.”

As the train entered the 21st Street-Queensbridge station, the suspects attacked the victim, striking him several times on his head and body, then fled, said officials.

The victim was taken to the hospital for medical attention.

Police describe the three suspects as black males, 17 to 19 years old.
