NEW YORK — A search continues for three men who police said attacked a resident of a home with a meat cleaver during a robbery in Queens, CBS New York reports

Investigators say it happened at about 1:30 p.m. on April 23. Three men were ransacking a house looking for something to steal when the two men who live there came home, police said.

When the tenants tried to flee, police said the suspects assaulted one of them with a meat cleaver. The 59-year-old man suffered slash wounds, according to police. He was hit in the head and hands with a meat cleaver and sent to the hospital in serious condition. 

The second resident, a 62-year-old man, was able to escape, and the suspects fled. 

One ran out carrying a gun while the other was carrying the meat cleaver used in the attack, police said. 

Police released surveillance video of one of the wanted suspects, who they said was seen running away from the scene. His two alleged accomplices avoided cameras.
