A group of San Diego men came to the aid of a mother and daughter during an attempted carjacking.

Fox and Friends showed video of the Good Samaritans wrestling down and restraining the suspect, who attempted to steal the vehicle with the mother and her daughter still inside.

Fox5 San Diego reported:

A woman and her child were sitting in a van in front of Appletree Market on University Avenue Sunday, when 21-year-old Ismael Hernandez allegedly got into the driver seat and drove off before hitting a pole, a witness told Fox5.

The video shows men dragging the suspect out of the van and forcing him to the ground by the neck. Other men punched and kicked him, while another stomped on his hand. They kept him on the ground until police arrived.


Hernandez was booked into San Diego Central Jail on charges of attempted carjacking, attempted kidnapping and attempted auto theft.

The mother and child were checked out by paramedics, but were not seriously hurt.
