    Police are looking for a pair of young men who allegedly knocked out a 33-year-old man on a Bronx street, then fractured the eye socket of a 67-year-old woman as they fled the scene.

    The suspects had an argument with the 33-year-old man on White Plains Road around 1 a.m. Sunday and it turned physical. Surveillance video shows the suspects punching the victim in the head and face, knocking him out on the street.

    Police say as the two fled, they punched a 67-year-old woman in the face; she suffered a fractured eye socket and was taken to Jacobi Medical Center, where she was awaiting surgery later this week. 

    The woman spoke exclusively to News 4 New York on Monday, saying, "These two guys came, they started with my friend first. After they knocked him out, they came around the corner and sucker-punched me."

    The other victim is also recovering at the hospital. 

    The suspects are thought to both be between 16 and 19 years old. Anyone who recognizes them is asked to call police.
