A group of carjackers crashed into a Bronx man while trying to undertake his car, then attacked him and broke his eye socket before stealing their victim’s car. 

Miquiel Guerrero, 23, and five others surrounded an unidentified victim, 53, and his car after they crashed into each other on Exterior Street in the Grand Concourse neighborhood around 6.30pm on March 30. 

The group appeared to be trying to pass the victim’s Kia in their Lexus and got trapped between him and an unoccupied Honda sedan.

Surveillance footage shows the group surrounding the driver’s vehicle, with one member standing on the roof of the car, causing massive dents to form. He appears to reach down and slap the victim on the head while Guerrero can be seen violently punching the victim several times.

After being beaten, the 53-year-old can be seen running away from the scene and two men enter his vehicle and begin to drive off with it. While three others hop in the Honda, according to the New York Post

Guerrero, who stayed on the scene for unknown reasons, was later arrested and charged with robbery. It is unclear why he did not receive an assault charge. 

Police are now looking for the other group members, all aged between 18 and 25, according to authorities. 

The victim was transported to Jacobi Medical Center and was treated for a fractured eye socket and facial cuts.  

The group later stole the victim's van as well as an unoccupied Honda. Guerrero stayed on the scene for unknown reasons and was apprehended and charged with robbery

The arrests comes as New York is in the middle of a crime surge, with overall crime up 42 percent. The Big Apple is an increasing problem with carjacking up 68 percent and felony assaults up 21 percent. 

Earlier this month, NYC Police Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell ‘this is not what New Yorkers expect or deserve, and we will not stand for it’ as crime continues to terrorize New Yorkers. 

‘It’s clear what we are confronting: A perception among criminals that there are no consequences, even for serious crime. We need tangible changes,’ added Sewell. 

NYC Mayor Eric Adams has now vowed to crack down on transit crimes, which is up more than 60 percent, but also lazy officers patrolling subway stations. 

Adams made the plea at a press conference Tuesday when asked by a journalist about reports of multiple uniformed cops being spotted scrolling through phones while on duty guarding the city’s crime-ridden transport network.

The former NYPD captain warned: ‘We are going to start taking very aggressive actions to make sure police are patrolling our subway system and not patrolling their iPhone.’

Overall crime is up 42 percent in the city and assaults are up 20 percent

‘If you see it, send me a picture. I’ll go to that district the next day and see exactly what is happening.

‘Send me a shot. New Yorkers, you see that send me a photo and I will be at that station.’ Adams spokesman told anyone with photos to send them to his press office, whose email address is pressoffice@cityhall.nyc.gov.

Adams said that New Yorkers can look forward to a ‘visible difference in policing in the next couple of weeks.’
