Genero Placenia, 18, carjacked a man at gunpoint after helping the 19-year-old victim free his car from the snow, cops say.
An 18-year-old goon helped a motorist dig out a car buried on a snow-swept Queens street Friday. Then he carjacked the man’s ride — along with his iPhone and cash — at gunpoint, cops said.

But Genero Placenia’s plan fell apart after he helped his 19-year-old victim free the Honda Civic on 75th St. near Pitkin Ave. in Ozone Park at 1:30 p.m., officials said.
The robbery suspect ditched the car in a snowbank. Placenia, who shucked off his clothes and shoes as he ran, was caught in a nearby building — with “most of his clothes off” cops said.
