A man was hit by a moving vehicle before the hit-and-run suspects allegedly pulled over to rob him, according to footage released by the New York Police Department (NYPD).

The incident unfolded Saturday around 6:40 a.m. on East 169th street in the Bronx, the NYPD said in a Sunday tweet. Authorities say a 39-year-old male was struck by a car before suspects “proceeded to forcibly take his property.”

Video footage shows the victim running across the street before a sedan clips him. The man flies through the air before landing in the middle of the road. At least two suspects are seen exiting the car, with one suspect then appearing to rob the victim before again fleeing, according to the video.

Authorities are offering up to $3,500 for information leading to the suspects’ arrests.

The victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital and listed in critical condition, police said, according to the New York Post.
