VIDEO: Pedestrian Loses Eye After Being Randomly Beaten By Violent Mob

Brooklyn, NY – Police are searching for a group of men who attacked a random pedestrian and beat him so severely, he lost one of his eyes (video below).

Security footage captured the Oct. 31 attack, which occurred in Bedford-Stuyvesant on Mother Gaston Boulevard near Broadway at approximately 9:30 p.m., the New York Daily News reported.

The 38-year-old victim was chased down and tackled to the pavement outside of 16 Stone Street, according to the New York Post.

A mob of about a dozen people repeatedly punched and kicked the man while he was down on the ground, the video showed.

A suspect in a tan-colored coat appeared to step on the victim before punching him again and throwing him back onto the sidewalk, the New York Daily News reported.

A second camera showed the victim lying in the middle of a crosswalk on Broadway, according to the paper.

His attackers kicked him in the head and punched him before they finally walked off, leaving the victim lying in the street, the video showed.

Motorists drove around the severely injured man as he stumbled to his feet just before the clip ended.

The victim was rushed to Brookdale University Hospital with a large laceration to his face, the New York Daily News reported.

Doctors ultimately had to remove the man’s left eye due to the severity of his injuries, sources told the paper.

The victim told police he has no idea who his attackers are and said the beating was completely unprovoked, the New York Daily News reported.

New York police released the video footage on Tuesday in an attempt to identify the violent suspects.
