Pizza Deliveryman Falls Into 3-Day Coma After Being Pistol-Whipped and Carjacked Outside West Philly Gas Station

The attack left the victim unconscious for three days.

A pizza deliveryman fell into a three-day coma after he was carjacked and pistol-whipped in a caught on cam attack outside a West Philadelphia gas station.

The 56-year-old victim was delivering pizza to the Lukoil Gas Station on the 5700 block of Baltimore Avenue Friday around 11 p.m. After making his delivery and returning to his vehicle minutes later, the victim was approached by an unidentified suspect who pulled out a gun from his waistband.

Surveillance video captured the suspect pistol-whipping the deliveryman and knocking him unconscious. A second suspect then entered the victim’s vehicle, a Chevy Prism, and drove off eastbound on the 5700 block of Baltimore Avenue.

Police say the first suspect reached into the unconscious deliveryman’s pockets and then fled east on Baltimore Avenue.

The victim suffered severe head injuries and was taken to Presbyterian Hospital where he remained unconscious until Monday.

Police released surveillance photos of the suspects and described them as a group of five black males ranging in age from 14 to 25. If you see the suspects, do not approach them and call 911 immediately.
