NEW YORK (PIX11) — The NYPD is seeking the public’s help in finding some reckless motorcyclists who were recorded shutting down a Manhattan street and terrorizing pedestrians over the weekend.
The guys seen in the video blocked off traffic on Broadway in upper Manhattan last Sunday. At least a dozen bikers were doing tricks and driving in circles in the middle of the street outside R.G. Ortitz Funeral Home.
They were gathered to “pay tribute” to a friend in the group, disrupting both vehicle and pedestrian traffic between 189th and 190th St. in Washington Heights before 4 p.m.
Police say their reckless behavior risked the lives of pedestrians and motorists.
The disturbance occurred only 12 blocks north of where Alexian Lien was chased and beaten by a group of bikers.
If you have any information on these bikers, please call Crime Stoppers and 1-800-577-TIPS.
