Cops Allegedly Beaten by Rowdy Migrant Mob Near Times Square

Shocking video captured the moment a migrant mob pounded a pair of cops near Times Square over the weekend — but the busted cowardly suspects were still released back on the street without bail, sources say.

The footage shows an NYPD officer and lieutenant initially telling the migrants to move along around 8:30 p.m. Saturday on West 42nd Street in Manhattan — before things quickly get rowdy as a scuffle breaks out between the cops and a suspect who is wrestled to the ground.

That’s when the rest of the punks converge on the officers, raining kicks to the head and body of the pair of New York’s Finest as the cops rumble with their pal, whose yellow sweatshirt is completely torn off in the melee.


Police initially busted four of the asylum-seeking thugs, identified by sources as Darwin Andres Gomez Izquiel, 19, Kelvin Servat Arocha, 19, Juarez Wilson, 21, and Yorman Reveron, 24.

A fifth suspect, Jhoan Boada, 22, was arrested Monday night and charged with attempted assault of a police officer, according to police sources.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s office said it is still investigating the incident and reviewing additional video of the alleged assault.

The two assaulted cops, who were not identified, suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene. One sustained cuts to the face while the other had bruising to the body, according to sources.

One of the men, Reveron, has two open cases in Manhattan for assault and robbery.
