A moment later, a suspect came up behind him and hit him in the back of the head with a brick — and kicked him out, according to police and the clip.

The footage shows the impudent suspect pushing the victim to the ground. The second suspect then appears to the helpless victim, throwing a quick kick in the face, as seen in the clip.

The video shows that both men slash the victim’s pockets and pull them until they tore his pants.
