The initial victim is now a suspect, as he fled the scene right after a witness called 911, the New York Post reports. Police have released surveillance footage of the attack, in a bid to catch the suspect, who was with a woman at the time.

“The 52-year-old man was allegedly caught breaking into the vehicle around 1:15 a.m. on March 24 near Park Avenue and East 140 Street in Mott Haven, sending the male owner of the car into a fit of rage,”
the Post reports.

“Surveillance footage released by cops late Tuesday shows the red-cap wearing man pummeling his victim, the alleged attempted thief, who is seen carrying a flashlight. He continues beating the man – tossing him onto the sidewalk and throwing him against the wall of a building, video shows,” adds the same media outlet.

The woman is also seen on video, talking to a witness and explaining that they had caught the car thief in action and that’s why he was at the receiving end of such a brutal beating. That same witness called 911, but the 2 suspects had fled the scene by the time cops arrived.

They also left the alleged thief lying on the pavement, with a fractured skull. He was rushed to the hospital, where he remains in a coma.

This is another case showing why it’s never a good idea to take the law into your own hands. Police recommend calling 911 the moment you notice a crime being committed, regardless if you’re the victim or not. Because this man didn’t do this, he is now facing jail time for assault on the alleged thief – or worse.
