Horrific surveillance video shows four homeless men being viciously beaten and robbed of $5 as they slept on a New York sidewalk

A group of thugs have been caught on surveillance video viciously beating four homeless men and stealing $5 from one of them as they slept on a New York sidewalk. 
Police released the horrific footage on Saturday in their search for the five suspects who attacked the men in Brooklyn late last month. 
One of the homeless men was beaten so badly that he later fell into a coma. 
The footage shows the homeless men, aged between 41 to 61, sleeping among garbage bags outside a store on 60th Street in Borough Park at about 6.45am on February 23.
The five suspects were filmed approaching the sleeping men and immediately launching the vicious attack. 
They started kicking and punching the victims, while hurling objects at them. 
One of the homeless men, who appeared to be cowering under a white sheet, was repeatedly kicked and stomped on.
Several suspects then dragged him out onto the sidewalk before continuing to punch and kick him. 
Police said the group stole $5 from one of the homeless men before fleeing the scene. 
Two of the homeless men were hospitalized with minor injuries. 
One of the men, who initially refused to go to hospital, is in a critical condition with severe head trauma. He later slipped into a coma, according to authorities. 
NYPD Police Commissioner James O’Neill appealed for the public's help in tracking down the attackers. 
'Please watch this disturbing video - somebody in the community knows these cowards. Sharing responsibility for public safety means picking up the phone and helping your police make your neighborhood safer. You can remain anonymous and you’ll get paid for your effort, too,' he tweeted. 
Anyone with information about the attack should contact 1-800-577-TIPS.
