    Police are looking for three suspects who attacked a 21-year-old woman on a Brooklyn street earlier this month, breaking her nose and dragging her on the sidewalk before robbing her and running off.

    Surveillance video shows three suspects walking on Franklin Avenue in Crown Heights Oct. 2 as the victim comes into the camera view from the opposite direction. As she walks past them, one suspect turns his head while another appears to grab her around the neck and slam her against the wall of a building.

    That suspect repeatedly punches the woman in the face and stomach, then the other two suspects sidle up and start pawing at the woman, possibly looking for more valuables, before dragging her on the cement by her feet, her hood, and finally, her purse.

    Eventually, one of the suspects pulls the woman's purse away and the three run off, leaving her lying on the street. Police said her cellphone was also stolen.

    The woman was taken to the hospital with a broken nose and facial lacerations.

    Anyone with information about the assault is asked to call police.
