WILLIAMSBURG — A pair of teenagers were attacked by a group of young men who punched, kicked and stomped on them before robbing the victims of their cellphones and cash, police said.
The 15- and 16-year-old victims were standing in front of the Bushwick Houses at 811 Flushing Ave. on Sept. 14 at 2:24 p.m. when a group of teens approached and started throwing punches.
A disturbing video of the robbery released by police shows the attack beginning with two suspects throwing repeated punches at a cowering victim.
As the assault continues, more suspects rush into the fight to throw punches and stomp on the teen who's trying to escape.
After the beating, the robbers grabbed the two teens' cellphones and $22 cash from one of the victims before fleeing the scene, police said.
Emergency workers took the two boys to Woodhull Hospital, where they were treated for bruising to their head and arms.
