Police are looking for four men who assaulted and robbed a man in Claremont.
Police say it happened Tuesday, Feb. 26. around 9:30 p.m.
They say four men randomly jumped a 39-year-old man along 170 Street near Grand Concourse.
They say they pushed the victim to the ground, and that he was badly beat up with minor injuries to the head and to the rest of his body.
