NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- An off-duty NYPD officer heading to work was beaten by a group of teens at Penn Station over the weekend, officials said. 

Officer Cagney Ramos, 33, was assaulted even after he identified himself as police according to the Daily News.

At approximately 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, Ramos, who is assigned to the World Trade Center Command in Lower Manhattan, got off of the Long Island Rail Road when the teens began hitting his backpack and flicking the baseball cap off his head, officials said.

After Ramos identified himself as NYPD, the suspects continued to punch and kick him to the ground, and spit on him before running off, authorities said.

Ramos was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital after he sustained injuries and deep lacerations to his face, ear, and arm.

No arrests have been made.

An investigation by the MTA Police Department remains ongoing.
