Two brutes bludgeoned a man with a hammer and metal rod after a third hit the guy with the swines’ car in Williamsburg on Christmas Day, cops said.

The driver rammed the silver Mercedes Benz sedan containing the two attackers into the 52-year-old victim in front of an iron works on Flushing Avenue near Skillman Street at 12:50 pm, according to authorities. The pair of fiends then pursued the guy on foot and beat him with the hammer and rod while the motorist remained behind the wheel.

Surveillance footage shows the victim eventually sprinted away from his assailants, who chased him down the sidewalk before one of them tripped and fell on the pavement, dropping his weapon.

The trio of suspects drove off on Flushing Avenue towards Queens following the assault, and paramedics transported the victim to a nearby hospital where doctors treated him for eye and head injuries, including putting eight staples into his skull.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
