Disturbing new video shows a mugger smashing a man in the head with a brick — knocking him unconscious — before he and an accomplice pick the victim’s pockets. 

The clip, released Thursday, shows the 53-year-old victim pushing his bike into the lobby of a building on East 165th Street near Tinton Avenue, part of NYCHA’s Forest Houses, around 2:10 p.m. Saturday, cops said. 

The attack starts with the victim being hit in the head with a brick, knocking him unconscious.

A moment later, one of the suspects comes up behind him and strikes him in the back of the head with a brick — knocking him out, according to cops and the clip. 

The brazen suspect then pushes the victim to the floor, the footage shows. A second suspect then walks up to the helpless victim, delivering a swift kick to his face, the clip shows. 

Both men then rifle through the victim’s pockets and tug on them until they rip his pants, the video shows.
