Manhattan, N.Y. — Cameras captured the brutal beating of a man on a city sidewalk in Manhattan’s Lower East Side Friday morning, as pedestrians are seen walking past.
Police are reporting that three males were involved in the incident, which occurred around 2:45 a.m.
Two men chased a 24-year-old man north on Orchard Street toward Stanton Street, eventually catching up to the victim and savagely pummeling and kicking him in his face, head, and body.
