This is the horrifying moment four Wisconsin teenagers brutally carjack a man’s vehicle, leaving the owner crumpled unconscious on the ground.
The teenage thieves aged 15, 16, 17, and 18 were caught in their violent act on May 17 thanks to surveillance video cameras set in the Milwaukee parking lot.
Thugs donning hoodies and hovering around several vehicles in the parking lot, seemingly contemplating their carjacking plan.
One of the teenagers then opens the driver’s door, which owner Lea immediately shuts back closed.
As that happens, another teenager opens the passenger’s seat door and enters in unnoticed.
Two teenagers then open the driver’s door again causing Lea to slowly rise out of his seat to confront them.
That’s when one of the boys throw a punch at Lea’s head, causing papers in his hand to go flying in the air
When Lea bends to pick up the fallen pieces of paper, the teen that slyly entered the car through the passenger’s seat surprises the driver from behind, punching him right in the face.
With several blows he beats the driver to the ground. Then a friend jumps on top of Lea and stomps on him, pinning him to the floor.
In just a matter of seconds three of the men pile into the car then drive off, while the smallest teenager, who seemed to work as a lookout, runs off into a nearby grassy area.
Lea was later discovered ‘bleeding and dazed’ on the ground by a local woman.
‘I kind of don’t remember anything after that because I was hit in the back of the head and left unconscious,’ Lea said to WISN.
He was taken to a local hospital and treated for lacerations to his head and face.
‘Left him unconscious and his son’s out there playing soccer. Can you imagine that? It’s just a horrific situation,’ Milwaukee County Sheriff Richard Schmidt said.
The 17-year-old was the first to be arrested after he led Milwaukee Police on a car chase before abandoning the car. His three teenage accomplices were later tracked down using the surveillance footage.
They face multiple charges each and the 17-year-old faced an additional charge of felony bail jumping due to a charge from a previous burglary case from April.
‘This isn’t the slap on the wrist, we’ll put them in community service. They need to spend some time paying for what they did and this was a horrific crime,’ Schmidt said on their punishment.
