BROOKLYN - Police have released surveillance video of a group of teens attacking a 65-year-old man at random in Brooklyn.

It happened on July 6 around 11:15 p.m. in front of Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights.

Video shows Richard Carey walking past a group of teens along the street when he is suddenly punched in the face by one of them.

"This kid ran up from my blind side so that the momentum of his punch lifted me up in the air and turned me over," Carey told News 12.

Police say the suspect broke the man's glasses and caused him to fall to the ground. Police say the three men and the woman can be seen casually walking away after the attack.

Carey was taken to the hospital where he was treated for a cut to his left eye and later released.
