A trio of robbers held their victim down and shocked him with a stun gun on a subway train last week, and police are now searching for them.

The robbers approached a 24-year-old man on a southbound 1 train in Inwood at about 3:30 a.m. Monday, July 30, according to police. The men showed a gun and demanded the victim's property.

They then held the victim down, shocked him with the stun gun and took cash before fleeing the train at 231st Street and Broadway.

The victim wasn't seriously hurt.

Anyone who recognizes the men in the photo is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS or at nypdcrimestoppers.com.
