Police in New York City are looking for dozens of suspects linked to a violent attack on a 26-year-old who was beaten, had his clothes removed, and was cut with a sharp object.

A video the New York Police Department (NYPD) showed that a group of males and females attacked the victim around 11:30 a.m. Friday near Canal and Allen streets in downtown Manhattan.

It is unclear what the motive for the attack was at this time.

Police said Saturday that the alleged attackers stole his cell phone, removed his pants, underwear, and shoes before cutting him with a sharp object.

The suspects fled the scene in several different vehicles, police said.

NBC 4 New York reported that the victim suffered lacerations to his torso, head, and hands. He was taken to a local hospital, where he was reported as being in stable condition.

Police have shared the video of the suspects on social media and are urging witnesses to share information with CrimeStoppers at 800-577-TIPS.

New York City has had its fair share of brazen attacks over the past few weeks.

Several muggers allegedly punched their 29-year-old victim so hard that they fractured his jaw just over a week ago in broad daylight.

This past week, four muggers were caught on camera attacking a New York City man before stealing his wallet.
