Thugs attack driver and jump on his car, break his eye socket and steal vehicle

A group of thugs crashed into a bloke's car while trying to overtake, then attacked him, breaking his eye socket and stealing his car in an horrific attack.

Miquiel Guerrero, 23, and five others surrounded an unidentified 53-year-old victim and his car after they crashed into each other in New York City, America.

The group had been trying to pass the victim's Kia in their Lexus and ended up trapped between him and an unoccupied Honda sedan.

Surveillance footage showed the group surrounding the victim's vehicle in terrifying scenes, with one member of the gang leaping on top of the car, with police now searching for the thugs.

The video showed one member of the group cause massive dents on the roof of the car before reaching down to slap the 53-year-old on the head, followed with violent punches to the victim.

Two men are also seen to have entered the unnamed victim's vehicle, while the other three hopped into the Honda and left the scene of the crime.

Guerrero is said to have remained at the scene of the crime for unknown reasons and was arrested for and charged with robbery.

The victim was transported to hospital and treated for both a fractured eye socket and facial cuts.

Guerrero's arrest and the search for the thugs that backed him comes as crime in New York surges by 42%, with specific crimes of carjacking up 68% and felony assaults up by 21%, Daily Mail reports.

Earlier this month NC Police Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell said: "This is not what New Yorkers expect or deserve, and we will not stand for it."

He continued: "It's clear what we are confronting: A perception among criminals that there are no consequences, even for serious crime. We need tangible changes."

NYC Mayor and former NYPD captain Eric Adams has said New Yorkers can look forward to a "visible difference in policing in the next couple of weeks."
