NEW YORK (AP) - Police have released surveillance video of four of the teenage suspects believed to have been involved in an attack on a 17-year-old girl in Brooklyn.

The New York Police Department says the teen was on Fourth Avenue around 7 p.m. on Jan. 12 when a group of about 20 people began punching her in the face. Her cellphone was stolen before the group fled on foot.

The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment of her injuries.

The teen told WCBS-TV she was attacked while walking home from the subway station.

The surveillance video released Thursday by the NYPD shows the faces of four suspects aged 15 to 17, including one boy and three girls.
