The relationship between the victim and the suspects is still unknown.

The latest incident comes after a series of attacks at the migrant shelter in New York.

In April, five men were arrested by the NYPD after they allegedly attacked another man in his bed and injured a security guard during the altercation.

The five men, ages 20 to 33, were accused of hitting another man while he was eating food in his bed shortly before 2 a.m. at the shelter on East 125 Street.

The package of migrants surrounded the bed and punched and scratched the victim “all over his head and face” and legs, police said.

The five men are charged with third-degree assault and harassment.

In February, police arrested two other migrants at the same facility when they allegedly hit another security guard in two separate altercations on the same evening.
