Two brutes beat a man with a baseball bat on Brighton Sixth Street on March 18.

The man told police that he was walking home between Oceanview and Brighton Beach avenues at 4 am when one of the goons grabbed him by the neck. A second lout jumped out and started punching him in the face and body, authorities said. Then the ruffian picked up a bat and struck the man in the head, said police.

The man collapsed on the ground, but the fiends kept kicking and punching him in the head and body. One of the slimeballs riffled through the man’s pockets and swiped his cellphone, officials said.

The victim said he recognized one of his attackers as his ex-girlfriend’s current boyfriend, according to a police report.
