Several muggers pummeled a 29-year-old man — fracturing his jaw — and then swiped his cell phone during a broad-daylight attack in the East Village this week, video released by cops shows. 

The crew surrounded their victim at 1st Avenue and East 3rd Street around 12:40 p.m. Wednesday and punched him repeatedly, cops said. 

In the video, released late Wednesday, he is shown on the ground during part of the attack. When he gets up, someone hits him in the face again. 

The suspects grabbed the victim’s cell phone before taking off on East 3rd Street, police said. 

The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition, with a fractured jaw. 

The muggers took off and were still on the loose Thursday.
