The victim was working in the garage of his Tremont Avenue house on Sept. 8 when two men demanded money. Police said the suspects had their hands in their pockets, as if they had guns, and threatened to kill him.

"As soon as I turned around, he was right on top of me... He grabbed me and said, 'Where's all the money at?' So he threw me on the car," Stephen Lazor told FOX 8 News.

The suspects got away with his cell phone and more than $200.

Cleveland police arrested five men late last month following a string of violent carjackings in Tremont this summer.
