In the footage you see the group wrestle the man out of the car, and onto the ground. They beat him, and held him until police arrived.

He was arrested and booked on multiple charges including, attempted carjacking, attempted kidnapping, and attempted auto theft.

As for the mother and her daughter, paramedics checked them out.

Their nerves were rattled but they were not physically harmed.
