West Orange police are asking for the public's help to identify the five men who allegedly beat and robbed a New York man at gunpoint in early May. 

West Orange police released images Monday of the men they believe were involved in the robbery that occured at the corner of Ridge and Watson avenues at about 9:55 p.m. on May 4.
