Police on Friday released photos and video of the two men wanted for punching and pistol- whipping a 16-year-old boy outside of a Staten Island high school earlier this week.

The footage shows the suspects pushing the Susan Wagner High School student against the back of a bus, before one of them pulls out what appears to be a gun.

Police said the suspects confronted the teen near the school’s football field Monday at around 3 p.m. and pummeled him.

One of them also hit the teen’s head with a firearm, causing him to be hospitalized with bruising and swelling to his face.

The sweatsuit-wearing suspects also beat up a 19-year-old man, cops said. One of the suspects wore a red Do-rag while the other sported an Afro.
