Police are looking for three teens who approached a man in a New York City subway station, tried to take his jacket, and beat him with nunchucks when he resisted.

Police say the 25-year-old victim was in Manhattan's West 157th Street station on the no. 1 line early Sunday morning when the suspects told him they liked his jacket and wanted it.

They then began to beat and kick him, police said.

When he wouldn't give up his jacket, one of the suspects began beating him with nunchucks, which are illegal in New York, police said.
