In New York last month, six men were caught on video surveillance carjacking a driver. One of the men climbed on the roof of the car as another man viciously punched the victim in the face, authorities said Wednesday.

After the accident, five unknown males and the 23-year-old male driver of the Lexus surrounded the victim’s vehicle, police said.
Video surveillance shows one of the males stomping on top of the victim’s car as the 23-year-old repeatedly punches the victim in the head.

The 23-year-old driver of the Lexus, identified as Miquiel Guerrero, stayed at the scene and was arrested for robbery, police said. The victim was taken into NYC Health and Hospitals/Jacobi for his injuries. He was treated for lacerations to his face and a fractured eye socket.
