Authorities say surveillance footage posted on Youtube by Police in Philadelphia helped lead to the arrest of four of five suspects accused of carjacking a pizza delivery man last weekend in West Philadelphia.

The video shows one carjacking suspect armed with a firearm striking a pizza driver on the head, knocking him unconscious, while another takes the victim’s car and drives away.

The armed assailant is seen in the footage rummaging through the victim’s pockets while he laid unconscious on the pavement.

The incident occurred around 11 p.m. at the Lukoil Gas Station on Baltimore Avenue back on October 20th.

Police officials said the victim remained unconscious for three days.

Officers arrested three underage teens, including a 13-year-old, and two 15-year-olds — both of whom have been charged as an adult — along with a 22-year-old suspect.
