Police have released disturbing surveillance footage of a man being brutally beaten with glass bottles “for fun” by three men.

The New Orleans Police Department has made the images and video public in an effort to find the three men who beat the victim on Sunday morning.

A 16-year-old suspect has been named one of the suspects. Brian Ellis is now facing an aggravated battery charge.

The video shows the men approaching him and quickly begin smashing bottles into his body and face, which sends him falling to the ground.

As he lay on the ground, the men continue to beat him, slamming glass into his head and face before stomping him and kicking him. They then walked away.

Police said the attack seems to not have a motive, and was likely done “just for fun” since the men did not steal any items.

“I’ve never had an incident like this. Usually there’s a reason, and usually it’s robbery,” Detective Michael Flores said.

The three men appear to be in their late teens or early 20s.

A witness called 911 and the man was taken to the hospital. He is now in intensive care and will need cosmetic surgery on his face.
