GRAPHIC VIDEO: Brooklyn man beaten and robbed in Midwood
A robber threw a Brooklyn man to the ground early Monday and pummeled him so badly he needed 70 stitches to close a gash on his forehead, according to cops and surveillance video.
Eli Weinstein, 55, was knocked to the sidewalk and hit repeatedly in the face by an assailant wearing a hoodie on Avenue M in Midwood at 12:50 a.m.
After Weinstein was on the ground, another attacker appeared and grabbed his iPhone and wallet from his pocket.
The two creeps then raced off and have not been apprehended, according to authorities.
The injured Weinstein walked to his nearby home, where his wife called Hatzolah paramedics. They took him to Maimonides Medical Center, where he was treated and released.
