    A group of young attackers were caught on camera savagely beating a pair of teenagers inside a Long Island Burger King, police say.

    Nassau County police said five men and two women brutally attacked two 16-year-old boys inside the fast-food restaurant on West Merrick Road in Valley Stream last month. After the attack, the group of suspects took off.

    Authorities said that a locked door spurred the attack; the two victims apparently refused to open up when the group got there.

    Video from inside the Burger King shows the group of suspects punching and kicking the victims.

    The two victims were treated for cuts and bruises at an area hospital, police said.

    The attack shocked diners stopping in the Burger King on Tuesday afternoon, and many were taken aback by the brutality they saw in the video that was released by police. 

    "Any time you can't iron out your differences in a civilized way, that's inappropriate," said Keith Smith of Valley Stream.

    Anyone with information about the attack or the attackers should call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
