WILLIAMSBURG — A man suffered life-threatening injuries including a broken skull when three men beat him with a metal bat on a residential street Wednesday morning, police said.

A neighbor heard an argument on the street and came outside of 247 S. Third St. just before 1 a.m. to find the 33-year-old victim lying in a pool of blood, NYPD officials said.

The neighbor called 911 and emergency workers took him to Bellevue Hospital, where he's listed in critical condition, police said.

The attackers rendered the man with extensive skull fractures, police sources said.

The men fled down the street south on South Third Street toward Marcy Avenue, police sources said.

No one had been arrested as of Friday afternoon and the motive of the attack was unclear, according to the NYPD.
