The brutal mugging of a 24-year-old man in Crown Heights last week was caught on surveillance camera.
The footage, recorded by security company Safezone 24, shows the man standing in front of his home on Crown Street near Brooklyn Avenue, talking on the phone, when he is surrounded by 2 men, who begin to assault him and push him up against a parked car.
The two thugs stole the man’s phone and forcibly removed his expensive jacket, police said. The thugs are seen running off with the stolen items.
The victim sustained minor injuries from the assault.
The thieves are described as black males approximately 25 years old, the NYPD said. They are still at large.
