Victim Alexian Lien and his wife
NY Post – Police arrested one biker among a swarm of motorcyclists that forced a driver off the West Side Highway in Upper Manhattan, minutes before the man was assaulted in front of his wife and two-year-old daughter more than 50 blocks away. Christopher Cruz, 28, of Passaic, New Jersey, was charged with reckless endangerment, reckless driving, endangering the welfare of a child and menacing in the first of two harrowing confrontations Alexian Lien had with a pack of bikers when he and his family were out for a Sunday drive. Cruz was on a bike that cut off Lien’s Range Rover and slowed down in front of him as other bikers circled the vehicle as the horror show initially unfolded in Harlem, police said. He was rear-ended by Lien around 1:30 p.m., sparking a half-hour confrontation that forced the driver over to the side of the road, where other bikers slashed the father’s tires and one enraged rider opened the driver’s door and tried to pull him out of the SUV, sources said. Law enforcement sources said Cruz’ erratic driving sparked the melee. Cruz was briefly hospitalized and released for minor injuries, including lower back pain, authorities said. He remained at the scene and is not believed to be among 20 to 30 bikers who followed the family up the West Side Highway onto West 178th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue in Washington Heights. That’s where the Range Rover came to a stop because its slashed tires went flat. Police released a photo Tuesday morning of two suspects in the assault and slashing, which sent the father to the hospital for stitches on his face and chest. Lien, who also suffered two black eyes, was treated and released. The footage stops before Lien is dragged out of the car, beaten and slashed but cops are looking for those two riders who appeared to be part of the mob that attacked the victim in front of his horrified wife and two-year-old daughter, sources said.
I wonder how fast this dude will drop the Fast and The Furious/Sons of Anarchy and flip on his homies now. No way the police give a fuck about the guy who cut off the SUV on the West Side Highway. Obviously they want the scumbags who slashed a dude in the fucking face in front of his wife and kids. Offer to knock out every other charge and hit him with just reckless driving and see if he’ll snitch. I’m sure chances are he stays loyal to his motorcycle mob playgroup. Then you know what happens?
Sick the motherfuckin Triads on these animals! Grand Theft Auto Style. If the Ballas wanna start fucking with Asians on the streets there’s gonna be some retribution. If the authorities can’t handle it, we take it to the streets. Triads take matters into their own hands to avenge Lien. Hope the tough guy routine was worth starting a full blown gang war, you fucking assholes.
PS – Gotta love these fucking morons posting pictures and videos of all the evidence all over the internet. Well played, guys. Well played.
