A graphic video shared with CWBChicago shows two male suspects attacking and robbing a 33-year-old male in Bucktown, Chicago, on Monday afternoon.
The violent attack and robbing incident, which took place around 2:55 p.m. on Monday, was recorded on surveillance cameras. The video footage show two male suspects dressed in black, one of which appeared to have a head and face covering, walking down a street and an alley in Chicago.
Another surveillance video shows the 33-year-old victim passing by the two suspects and walking down an alley. While the 33-year-old male was walking down the alley, he appeared to be eating a piece of pizza before one of the suspects ran up behind him and began punching him into a fence on the side of the road.
The surveillance footage shows the second suspect run up and attempt to steal the victim’s backpack while the first suspect continued to beat the victim.
Video footage shows both suspects repeatedly punching and kicking the man, before dragging the victim to the other side of the alley near multiple garbage cans. One of the two suspects was recorded stomping on the victim before the two left the alley with the victim’s backpack.
Throughout the video, the victim can be heard screaming, unsuccessfully urging both the suspects to stop attacking him.
