Two teenagers arrested for carjacking in New York, causing serious injury to the owner
Police said two teenagers were arrested on suspicion of car theft in Queens – a car theft that left the owner seriously injured when he tried to stop the thieves by grabbing onto the roof.
Authorities said the 15-year-old suspects were charged with grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and unauthorized use of a vehicle in connection with an incident that took place Monday night in South Richmond Hill.
The 28-year-old victim was standing outside his Lexus, which he had left on, on Lefferts Boulevard and Liberty Avenue around 10:45 p.m. when three suspects jumped into his car, police said.
He grabbed the roof rack as the suspects raced down the street in the car, authorities said.
The thief driving soon crashed into a fire hydrant, throwing the victim out of the car, causing the car to overturn, police said.
The owner of the car remained in critical but stable condition at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center early Wednesday morning.
One suspect was still at large on Wednesday morning, police said.
