Eye for a car

The victim told police he pulled over and hopped out of the car with the ignition running to take a phone call and smoke a cigarette between 21st Avenue and Bay Parkway at around 1 pm. The lowlifes then approached him, wearing surgical masks, and told him not to move — speaking in Cantonese, he told officers — before spraying him with the unknown substance, jumping in the car, and fleeing in an unknown direction, police reported.
