The Jersey City Police Department is seeking the public’s help identifying a group of people wanted in connection with a brutal street beating caught on camera.
The attack happened shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday near the corner of Orient Way and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Jersey City.
In the video recorded by a passerby and posted on social media, a group of people is seen attacking a man who is seated inside of a car. The victim is seen trying to drive away. He strikes the car parked in front of him as the attack continues. He is then seen suddenly putting the car in reverse, knocking down at least one person in the process.
The crowd then pulls the man out of the car and onto the street, where they pile on him. At one point a man jumps on the windshield and smashes it.
The victim was kicked in the street until he was left there alone, motionless and bleeding.
Police have not said what set off the attack. They have released photographs of at least seven people believed to be involved.
 
Police say that the 42-year-old victim, who was not identified, has been released from the hospital.
Anyone who may have information about the attack is asked to call the Jersey City police anonymous tip line at 201-547-JAIL.
