A 19-year-old man was “hanging out” with the thugs who attacked and carjacked him, police said. The suspects, described as two men in their 20s and an 18-year-old woman, began punching the victim several times before driving away in his silver 2007 Nissan Altima. Police also say the suspects had an orange SUV. The victim suffered a swollen right eye but declined treatment.
