Police say a 47-year-old man was shopping when he was approached by three men and a woman. The video shows one of the suspects starting to attack the customer and hitting him with a glass bottle.

When the customer falls to the floor, the other three suspects surround, kick and punch him. Police say one of the suspects took a money clip with $100 in cash from the customer.
