Nearly 20 teens beat a 15-year-old girl on a sidewalk before stealing the sneakers off her feet and her debit card

Authorities are looking for a group of teenagers who brutally beat and robbed a 15-year-old girl after chasing her around Brooklyn.

Authorities said the incident began around 4.10pm Thursday when the victim was approached by a group of unidentified individuals in front of 216 Utica Avenue.

It's unclear what started the altercation, but surveillance footage shows the group of young teenagers chased after the girl until she fell on the sidewalk.

Then, nearly 20 individuals jumped onto, kicked and punched her several times as the group swarmed around her.

As the suspects fled the scene, one of them stole the girl's sneakers off her feet while she's on the ground. Her phone and debit card were also stolen.

The girl was transported to NYC Health & Hospitals/Kings County to be treated for head trauma and business.

Authorities believe Thursday's assault is in direct retaliation for a previous slight, but the details of that are unclear.

Assistant Chief Jeffrey Maddrey of NYPD Brooklyn North said the whole ordeal was outrageous.
