A Williamsburg man was mugged at gunpoint outside his home early Thursday morning.

Surveillance video shows the man speaking on the phone on Rodney Street between Lee Avenue and Bedford Avenues around 2 a.m. Thursday, when another man walks up behind him and sticks a gun in his back. The victim told police that the mugger demanded his phone and money. Video shows the victim emptying the contents of his pockets onto the ground, and the perpetrator picks up the items. The victim then runs away, and the perpetrator flees in the other direction.

Williamsburg Shomrim say the thief took the victim’s phone and a small amount of money.
