Local News

YONKERS, N.Y. — More than a dozen alleged gang members were arrested in connection to a violent assault on a man in Yonkers earlier this year, authorities announced Monday.

Eleven adults and three adolescents of the 300 Bloodhound Brims street gang were taken into custody on charges connected to the violent attack of a man on June 17, according to Yonkers police.

During the time of the incident, a large gathering took place in the vicinity of North Broadway and Ashburton Avenue in memoriam of a deceased community member, officials said.

The event had been monitored by police detectives as known gang members were in attendance, authorities said.

That night, detectives witnessed a large group of men attack another man, punching and kicking him to the ground and taking his property, including two gold chains and a wristwatch, according to officials.

The victim was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries and suffered bleeding on the brain, broken and missing teeth, and abrasions to his face, back and arms.

Investigation determined the victim entertained a convenience store and was followed inside by three of the suspects. A verbal dispute began, which later became physical, Yonkers police said.
