MIDWOOD - Police are searching for several suspects in connection to a fatal assault in a quiet Midwood neighborhood Tuesday night.

Investigators are still combing the area outside of 1494 East 7th St. for evidence after neighbors say three or four suspects assaulted 61-year-old Steve Halfron and left him to die.

Police say the incident started a few blocks away from where Halfron was found. They say they believe the suspects attacked Halfron when he left his coin business on Kings Highway, possibly for money.

They say the suspects then left Halfron at the Midwood location and fled, leaving behind a blue sedan.

Halfron leaves behind a wife and daughter.
