NYPD: Man found in BMW trunk was robbery victim

Police in New York City say a man found stabbed, bound and barely alive in the trunk of a BMW after a fender-bender had placed an online ad to sell the car.
The NYPD says they are looking for the man they suspect was driving and fled the scene, 30-year-old Barion Blake of Manhattan. Police spokesman Paul Browne tells The New York Times that the motive appears to be the robbery. The newspaper also reports Blake has a history of stealing BMWs.
Police say the bloodied 33-year-old victim _ identified as Akeem Ajimotokan _ was found in the car's trunk in upper Manhattan on Wednesday. The car had collided with a taxi and the driver fled. That's when police noticed a man in the trunk.
Ajimotokan is hospitalized in a coma with stab wounds to the head, face and body.
