A group of club-wielding robbers pummeled a drug-trade rival in a caught-on-video beatdown in Brooklyn, cop sources said Monday night.

The 50-year-old victim was sitting on the stoop of a home on Pulaski St. near Malcolm X. Blvd. in Bedford-Stuyvesant just after 6:45 p.m. Feb. 2 when several men in hoodies approached him, police said.

One man rushed in with a club and started beating him. Within seconds, three more men, all with similar weapons, joined in, as four others stood nearby.

The men stole the victim’s cell phone and ran south on Stuyvesant Ave, police said.

Medics rushed the victim to Woodhull Hospital with a broken leg and broken eye socket, police said.

The victim is involved in the drug trade, and isn’t cooperating with investigators, police sources said.

Cops released video of the beating Monday night, and ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
