QUEENS — A man was in critical condition after four people beat him unconscious and robbed him in Ridgewood Thursday, police said.
The 52-year-old, whose name wasn't released, was attacked by two men and two women near the intersection of Putnam and Seneca avenues about 9:48 p.m., punching and kicking his face and head, NYPD officials said.
Video released by police shows one of the men kicked the suspect outside a deli near the intersection.
The quartet, all of whom appear to be in their early 20s, knocked him unconscious before rummaging through his pockets and fleeing the scene, police said.

One suspect is about 5 feet 8 inches and has a tattoo on his right forearm, police said. He was last seen wearing a light hoodie, light pants and a light T-shirt, police said.
The other man was last seen wearing a blue and black baseball cap with a black hoodie, beige pants and dark sneakers, police said.
