Victim Wants ‘Justice’ After Disturbing Harlem Dirt Bike Attack That Left Father Injured

A Manhattan man who was beaten by a mob of dirt bikers — along with his father — said Thursday that the wild, caught-on-video brawl was sparked by a mere “accident.”

The 35-year-old man told The Post he now worries about his 64-year-old father, who suffered a concussion and is struggling after the disturbing broad-daylight assault Tuesday in Harlem.


Surveillance footage shows at least five bikers converge on the vehicle, dragging both the driver and his passenger son out and pummeling them on the street — with one motorcyclist seen stomping the older man while he is on the ground.

The driver’s son, who asked not to be identified, said the pair were driving on Frederick Douglass Boulevard at West 127th Street around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday when one of the bikers, who was going against traffic, blew through a red light and collided with their car.


“My father was driving. He got in a panic. He was scared {snip},” he said, referring to his father fleeing the mob for two blocks before the bikers caught up to them. {snip}
