Three people viciously attack a man on a Little Havana street, beating him with a steel pipe and using pepper spray, then stealing $150, police said.

Police released a jarring 29-second video of a man who was viciously attacked with pepper spray and a steel pipe on Sunday in East Little Havana.

The suspects remain free. The victim, who hasn’t been named, is in stable condition, according to police.

The video begins with a man wearing a black tank top and blue jeans lying on the ground near a sidewalk at 1460 SW Sixth St. A man in black pants and a blue shirt pepper sprays his face while a woman begins hitting him with a steel pipe.

He struggles, at times covering his head and body with his arms and forearms. Then another woman shows up and they continue to beat the man as he lies on the ground.

Finally, with the man still pepper spraying, the women drag the man on the ground behind a wall and the video ends. Miami Fire Rescue took the victim to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Police said the attackers got away with $150.
