The shocking moment three women beat an Asian man with a metal pipe before taking off with his car has been caught on camera.
Danxin Shi, a rideshare driver, is no longer able to work after his vehicle was stolen by the gang about 5:30pm on Tuesday evening in crime-ridden, Dem-led Chicago.
Footage shows the moment the Chinatown resident, who lives West 22nd Place, parking his vehicle and walking along the street when he is struck with a weapon and shoved to the ground - where he is beaten repeatedly.
His key was stripped from his hand as he lay on the ground trying to protect himself.
'I have a key and they took my key,' he said.
As the women climb into his car, Shi moved around the front and tried to stop them from driving away.
'I tried to block them and they drove,' he said.
As he relies on his vehicle for work, he's currently unable to earn any income.
'Right now I have nothing to drive, I just stay home because I have no car, but next week I'll try to rent a car.'
Shi was left with scratches across his body but managed to avoid any serious injuries.
Chicago police said no arrests have yet been made, according to ABC7 Chicago.
