Cops are hunting for the four gun-wielding goons behind a brutal Gowanus carjacking on Saturday.

The 25-year-old victim told police that he drove his silver sedan to a stop sign on 16th Street near Third Avenue at around 2:20 a.m. on Aug. 24, when the brutes dragged him out of the car and repeatedly pistol whipped him in the face, according to police.

Surveillance video from the scene shows three of the suspects unsuccessfully trying to force the victim into the truck of his car, while the fourth keeps a lookout as the vehicle is sitting idle.

The perps grabbed $6,000, a cell phone, and a watch before hopping behind the wheel of the victim’s car and driving off, cops said.

The 25-year-old victim refused medical attention on the scene, according to police.

Anyone with information in regards to the identity of this male is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at www.NYPDCrimeStopper.com, or on Twitter @ NYPDTips.

All calls are strictly confidential.
