4 of 5 Face Charges in Carjacking That Left Pizza Deliveryman Knocked Out

The attack at the Lukoil in Southwest Philadelphia left the victim unconscious for three days.

Philadelphia police say surveillance video they shared has led to the arrest of four of five suspects in a carjacking that saw one suspect knock a pizza driver unconscious and another drive away in the car the driver was using.

Police haven't released the names of the suspects in the Oct. 20 attack that left the driver in a three-day coma, but say they include a 13-year-old, two 15-year-olds — one of whom has been charged as an adult — and a 22-year-old.

The 56-year-old pizza delivery person was returning to his car at the Lukoil Gas Station at 58th Street and Baltimore Avenue around 11 p.m. when he 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 got in the victim’s Chevy Prism, and drove off.

The first suspect can be seen going through the victim's pockets while another man drives away in the car, which reportedly belonged to the driver's employer.

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