NEW YORK (AP) - A worker at a 7-Eleven in Brooklyn has lost his job after a group of employees were recorded ripping the clothes off a suspected shoplifter.

The video was recorded by a bystander Wednesday, and then promptly posted online.

The video begins with two clerks dragging the man back into the store and continues as they wrestle him into submission.

In the process, his shirt is ripped off, his pants fall down and he is left struggling in his boxers.

Through it all, the man shouts "I got nothing, man!"

A 7-Eleven spokeswoman says the company fired one worker and will retrain two others.

Police said the shoplifting suspect was already wanted in another case.

He faces charges including robbery and assault.
