A 41-year-old man was left hospitalized after he was attacked by two unknown men in Ridgewood on Sunday.

On March 10, around 12:40 a.m., the victim got into a verbal dispute with two men near Metropolitan and Grandview Avenues. The argument quickly escalated, before one of the men struck the victim several times in the body. The two suspects then fled the scene in an unknown direction, police say.
