On Tuesday night, police arrested two more men in connection with the Motorcycle Mob case. Detective Wojciech Braszczok is assigned to the NYPD’s Intelligence Division and to be charged with Riot and Criminal Mischief.

A source tells PIX11 Braszczok, a 10-year veteran of the NYPD, first told investigators he arrived at the scene of the beating when it was essentially over and thus did not get involved.

But investigators obtained a video this week that showed a man they believe to be Detective Braszczok on the scene early on, even punching out the back window of the SUV being driven by Alexian Lien.

The source went on to say it appears Braszczok also kicked the vehicle driven by the father of one. Another source tells PIX11 Braszczok is not being represented by a union lawyer from the Detectives Endowment Association.  Braszcok faces Riot and Criminal Mischief charges.

The second man to be arrested Tuesday night is Clint Caldwell of Brooklyn. The 32-year-old is to be charged with Gang Assault, Assault and Criminal Mischief as police allege he took part in the mob beating of Lien in front of his wife and 2-year-old daughter.

Braszczok and Caldwell are the 5th and 6th men charged in connection with the case. At least two other motorcyclists who took part in the assault are at large and still being sought by police.

Both men are expected to be arraigned tomorrow.
