Philadelphia police need your help finding a group of men responsible for a violent carjacking at a Kensington gas station last weekend.

The attack was captured on surveillance video from outside the BP on the 400 block of West Lehigh Avenue last Saturday evening.

In the video you can see at least four suspects surround the victim the moment he gets out of his car. The main gunman then orders his accomplices to empty the 42-year-old man's pockets.

The victim tries to escape back into his car. Instead, one of the suspects jumps in and takes off, dragging the man with him.

The victim wasn't hurt, but he did lose about $500.

His car was found abandoned nearby.
