BALTIMORE (WJZ)—A delivery driver is severely beaten and left to die. The vicious attack was captured on surveillance video.
Weijia Jiang explains police are on the hunt for four suspects.
There are no leads. Police say those responsible caused the 41-year-old victim to lose consciousness. By the time medics arrived, he was lying in a pool of blood.
It looks like a group of men just standing together in a parking lot, and then a brutal beating begins. Surveillance video shows one man punching and pushing the victim to the ground. A second suspect joins in. Both stomp on his chest. After the victim is clearly down, a third man kicks him again—all in broad daylight.
“Next thing you know dudes just knocked him out,” said Jerrod Epps, spectator.
“He dropped, I mean he fell to the ground,” said Angel Montanez, spectator.
The attack happened last month at the Charring Cross Shopping Center in Baltimore.
Police say the victim was driving the truck when he hit the car parked behind it. They say two of the suspects falsely claimed it was theirs, demanding money to settle. When the victim said no, they became violent.
“That was not their car; it was my car,” said Ahmed Muneer, Wireless Discount Store owner.
Muneer is shocked the fight was over his vehicle and took place outside the store he owns.
A camera above the door captured it all.
Muneer says he rushed outside when he saw a large group of people gathered around his car. He thought they were looking at the damage but realized the victim was lying right next to it. That’s when he called 911.
“I talked to him personally. I said ‘Are you OK? You need help, water?’ He was not talking,” Muneer said.
Police say the victim is still recovering.
“The material things can come back, but lives that are gone, whatever happened to him, you never get it back,” Muneer said.
The victim was treated and released from Sinai Hospital for head injuries. No word on whether there’s any permanent damage.
Again, police are looking for a total of four men. They urge you to report any tips.
