"He started to run away and they chased him, the suspects chased him, beat him up, took his car keys, and took off in his car," Davis said.

Police are working with regional partners to investigate the incident, Davis said.

City Councilman Isaac "Yitzy" Schleifer, who represents the area, said more must be done to address violent attacks by juveniles.

"I'm going to be very clear," he said. "Those who are committing violent offenses in our communities, wreaking havoc on our communities and our citizens, must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. These are people who are holding people up at knifepoint, at gunpoint, beating up innocent people, stealing their cars. They need to be held accountable."

Schleifer said he wants to know why certain offenders he knows from the neighborhood keep getting released after being arrested despite their records.

"How did they get to the point where they are running around with ankle bracelets on and still committing offenses?" he asked.
