Police have released surveillance images of three men accused of attacking and robbing a 70-year-old man in Flatbush.

Investigators say the 70-year-old man was sitting on a bench when a man came up and punched him in the back of the head.
After the man was punched from behind, police say the same suspect ripped a necklace from his neck, and ran to a white Nissan SUV with two other men who were acting as lookouts.
