(CBS) PHILADELPHIA -- Police are now on the hunt for four suspects who were caught on tape beating and robbing a man and his brother in a Northeast Philadelphia supermarket, CBS Philly reports.

The random attack, which occurred at 10 p.m. on September 29 inside of a Pathmark, was caught on a cell phone video camera and found online by Philadelphia Eyewitness News.

The disturbing content of the video, as shown above, shows four suspects approaching the 47-year-old victim, who was looking at items inside of a freezer. A verbal confrontation between the suspects and victims erupts which quickly escalated into a physical attack, where the victim was punched, kicked and stuck with a glass bottle. His brother was hit in the back of the head. One of the suspects then took the victim's money clip containing $100 in cash before running out of the store and driving away in a 4-door hatch back.

The 47-year-old victim, who fractured his eye, cheek and nose, will be undergoing reconstructive surgery as a result of the attack.

While the video has since been taken off of Youtube, investigators are baffled as to how footage was even captured and uploaded in the first place and the victims are angered.

"I put it on the parents and I hope the parents are out there and they see this because you know what your child looks like," the 47-year-old victim told CBS Philly.

Police are still searching for the suspects and ask anyone with information to call 911 or 215-686-TIPS (8477).

The victim's wife pleaded for parents to help with the search, "If these are your children? Please come forward and help us. You need to help your kids. I would not tolerate this with my kids."
