(Meredith) -- The New York City Police Department released a startling video that shows a group of people beating a 15-year-old girl on a sidewalk and then stealing the shoes right off her feet.

The video shows several suspects running toward the teen in Brooklyn and repeatedly kicking her as she curls herself up in a fetal position on Thursday.

Police said the suspects also punched the teen before stealing her shoes, phone and debit card.

The victim was rushed to a hospital with bruising and swelling to her face, reported. Police are still searching for the suspects.  

NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan called the incident a "despicable gang assault" in  a .

"We will never tolerate this violence in our city," he tweeted. " need the help of every New Yorker so they can arrest those responsible."

Its bad enough boys are stomping a young lady but it took that many to steal her shoes? I hope the victim has a swift and successful recovery, physically and emotionally.
