Police search for 3 attackers caught on camera moments before severely beating man

Beating took place in broad daylight near Publix in Miramar

MIRAMAR, Fla. – Video footage captured the disturbing images of a young man being led toward a brutal beating.

That victim was left for dead. Police are still searching for the trio of attackers.

Surveillance video provided an up-close look at one of the attackers as he led the victim down the street.

The man was holding a grocery bag just before 4 p.m. Sunday.

They walk to the corner, out of frame, behind a dumpster, where two other men are waiting.

What happens next can't be seen by the camera, but the audio is clear, and it's very unpleasant.

Neighbors said it was a massive beat down.

One witness who did not want to be identified told Local 10 News the victim came out of the Publix at South Hiatus Road and Pembroke Road and couldn’t find his bicycle.

“When he came out, his bike was gone and some gentlemen approached him and told him that they knew where his bike was," the witness said.

Two of the attackers were seen on security camera behind the strip mall, prior to the set up.

Miramar police detectives sent out surveillance pictures of the three men they said are behind the attack.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
