Repo Man Seriously Injured after Wild Ride on the Hood

El Segundo, CA – December 11, 2012 – An LA Repo Man was seriously injured after being taken on a high speed ride on the hood of a repo by the borrower.

According to police, Stephen Paul Jimenez, 33 is being charged with attempted murder after he rammed his car into a repo Man in El Segundo on Tuesday, driving three blocks at high-speed with the victim clinging to his hood.

According to El Segundo police Lt. Raymond Garcia, Jimenez, jerked the steering wheel of his 99’ Mercedes-Benz to shake the unnamed Repo Man off of the car, causing him to tumble into the street.

Jimenez was reportedly hiding inside the car shortly before 2 p.m. when the Repossessor attempted to repossess it just off of El Segundo Boulevard and Main Street. Jimenez jumped up out of hiding and exchanged words with the victim, started the car and rammed it into the victim, who rolled up onto the hood, Lt. Garcia said.

According to police reports, Jimenez purposely swerved the car near a Chevron refinery throwing the victim off the car, and drove off leaving the victim injured after the fall.

Jimenez was booked for suspicion of attempted murder and is being held at the El Segundo jail on a $500,000 bail.

The unidentified Repo Man’s injuries were described as significant, was taken to County Harbor-UCLA Medical.

  1. Why would you make a comment like that? I don’t care if he was doing it for free, he should not have been taken ‘for a ride’ trying to do a job. I do think agents and agencies are not getting paid enough but untill you start saying no to unreasonable fees or ‘freebees’ then we will continue to be underpaid and under loved.

  2. This should surprise me but it doesn’t…violence toward recovery agents are quickly becoming the norm instead of the exception. I wonder if Mr. Jimenez thinks his1999 Mercedes-Benz is worth being book for the suspicion of attempted murder. Suspicion…really??? Mr. Jimenez rammed the repo man with his car and purposely swerved to throw the man off the car….that smells like certainty to me not suspicion.
