CCTV:August 01/09.BRIDGETON Police here hope the release of a surveillance video will lead to the identification and arrests of two individuals responsible for the brutal beating and robbery of a 23-year-old man on Bank Street the night of Aug. 1.

The video shows two males attacking the victim, a North Pearl Street man, on the west side of the 100 block of Bank Street, just south of Irving Avenue. One of them swung a board or metal pipe, as if it was a baseball bat, and struck the victim in the head, knocking him unconscious.
