A Maplewood man faces up to five years in prison after he was found guilty of beating up a woman who he felt was taking too long getting out of a car, the Essex County Prosecutor's Office said Wednesday. 

Jahmil Jasper, 39, was seen on surveillance video emerging from his gray Audi Dec. 8 and attacking the 51-year-old woman, who was recovering from recent surgery. Jaspar punched her twice in the head, dragged her into the street and punched her four more times while she was down. Jasper is also seen on the video kicking her twice in the head. 

The woman was treated at Beth Israel hospital in Newark for non-life-threatening injuries. 

Jasper, who was caught after Maplewood police detectives located the video showing the attack, was convicted of aggravated assault. 

“An Essex County jury decided that this kind of senseless violence would not be tolerated in our community,’’ said Assistant Prosecutor Felicia Garnes. 

Jasper is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
