Man Shot and Robbed

A 23-year-old man was shot multiple times by a group of thugs as they swiped his watch in Upper Manhattan — with video of the attack released by police on Sunday.

Four muggers jumped the victim on West 207th Street near Sherman Avenue around 1:30 a.m. on June 11, police said.

The video tweeted by NYPD Crime Stoppers shows the hooded assailants shooting at the man before fleeing in a white Mercedes Benz driven by a fifth man.

The crew opened fire when the victim refused to hand over his jewelry — with at least one of the robbers pulling out a weapon and firing.

He was struck in the torso, buttocks and leg, cops said. It’s unclear how many of the men fired. The robbers stole the helpless man’s watch before they took off, cops said.
