Police have arrested one of the juveniles seen in viral videos attacking a BMW on a Manhattan street this week.
Video footage shows dozens of teens surrounding the vehicle, kicking the car and punching the windows as the driver's frantic mother called 911 while screaming, "We're going to die!
The 70-year-old woman and her son had just dropped off a donation to a nonprofit organization that benefits Black Lives Matter when the attack happened.
Max Torgovnick told the NY Post he and his mother were headed to his father's neurology office on Fifth Avenue when his BMW was surrounded by a pack of 50 teenagers on BMX bicycles -- Christmas gifts from a nonprofit organization.
Torgovnick said he was worried the teens would smash out his car windows, get inside the car and pull them out.
According to the NY Post, the juvenile detainee, who lives in Queens, is being charged with vandalism to Torgovnick's car and other misdemeanors.
More arrests are expected.

East 20s, #Manhattan, New York, earlier today. ~25 - 50 mixed-age teenagers on BMX bicycles descend onto the streets. Two grab onto a car driving by to catch a ride. The driver breaks & 1 of the bikers crashes into something, resulting in a bloody lip. Next is below. #FundPolice pic.twitter.com/qXowgJG9S4
