According to police, a second suspect got out of the van and pulled a knife on the victim while making additional threats.

The 17-year-old victim was at a gas station on Avenue U near Mill Avenue in Mill Basin around 3:30 p.m. Oct. 20 when the suspects approached him in a burgundy-colored Ford van, police said. 

One of the men was still in the van when he addressed the teen, saying, “Oh, so you’re a f—-t and a Jew?,” according to cops. 

Then the second suspect got out of the van and pulled a knife on the victim while making additional threats, police said.

Both men fled northbound on Mill Avenue. The victim did not report any injuries. 

Both suspects, and their van, are shown in footage released late Tuesday.

One of the men is described as light-skinned and between 30 and 40 years old, last seen wearing a white tank top.

The other suspect is dark-skinned and around the same age, last seen wearing a black sweatshirt with a camouflage Puma logo, dark pants and white Nike sneakers.

The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident.
