Video Shows Gang Beat Bronx Driver, Steal Vehicle After Crashing Into Him

Bronx, NY – The brutal attack of the driver of a Kia minivan in the Bronx a month ago was captured on surveillance video with gang members delivering a beatdown and stealing the victim’s car (video below).

The incident occurred at about 6:40 p.m. on March 30 on Exterior Street in the Bronx, the New York Daily News reported.

Surveillance video showed a Lexus SUV traveling on Exterior Street near East 150th Street tried to squeeze between a Kia minivan traveling the same direction and a Honda that was parked.

The Lexus wedged so tightly between the Kia and the Honda that the parked sedan was moved several feet down the curb, the video showed.

The driver of the Lexus and the owner of the Honda, plus four of the Honda owner’s friends, surrounded the Kia.

The video showed one of the angry men got onto the roof of the Kia and began stomping around.

When the 53-year-old driver of the Kia SUV got out of his vehicle, he was attacked by the gang of men surrounding the car, the video showed.

Even the man on the roof of the car bent down to hit the Kia’s driver, the New York Daily News reported.

The driver tried to run but the video showed one of the gang chased him.

One of the attackers got behind the wheel of the Kia and drove the car a block while his cohorts jumped up and down on the hood, the video showed.

Another attacker whacked the Kia’s windshield with his skateboard as the vehicle rolled on.

The car stopped and one of the suspects on the hood jumped into the passenger seat.

Another attacker stopped them and handed something through the passenger window, and then the stolen Kia fled the area with three suspects inside, the video showed.

When police arrived on the scene, only the owner of the Lexus SUV that initially struck the Kia and the Honda was still there, the New York Daily News reported.

The Kia’s owner was transported to Jacobi Medical Center with a fractured eye socket and cuts to his face that were sustained in the attack.

New York Police Department (NYPD) officers told the Lexus’ owner, 23-year-old Miguel Guerrero, that the SUV would have to be towed as evidence.

That’s when police said that Guerrero threatened an NYPD lieutenant with violence, the New York Daily News reported.

Police arrested Guerrero at the scene.

Investigators linked him to the attack on the Kia driver and charged Guerrero with robbery for his role in the theft of the Kia, the New York Daily News reported.

Police are still looking for the other five attackers.
