Police arrest biker THUG who terrorized family out for a Sunday drive in New York

On Sunday this biker gang terrorized a family that was out for a Sunday drive and eventually slashed the tires and drug the father out and beat him in front of his wife and 2-year-old daughter. Fortunately the cops have now arrested the thug who started the conflict by cutting off the victim’s Range Rover. But the bikers who attacked the vehicle dragged the victim out are apparently still on the loose:

NY POST – Police arrested one biker among a swarm of motorcyclists that forced a driver off the West Side Highway in Upper Manhattan, minutes before the man was assaulted in front of his wife and two-year-old daughter more than 50 blocks away.

Christopher Cruz, 28, of Passaic, New Jersey, was charged with reckless endangerment, reckless driving, endangering the welfare of a child and menacing in the first of two harrowing confrontations Alexian Lien had with a pack of bikers when he and his family were out for a Sunday drive.

Cruz was on a bike that cut off Lien’s Range Rover and slowed down in front of him as other bikers circled the vehicle as the horror show initially unfolded in Harlem, police said.

He was rear-ended by Lien around 1:30 p.m., sparking a half-hour confrontation that forced the driver over to the side of the road, where other bikers slashed the father’s tires and one enraged rider opened the driver’s door and tried to pull him out of the SUV, sources said.

Law enforcement sources said Cruz’ erratic driving sparked the melee.

Cruz was briefly hospitalized and released for minor injuries, including lower back pain, authorities said.

He remained at the scene and is not believed to be among 20 to 30 bikers who followed the family up the West Side Highway onto West 178th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue in Washington Heights. That’s where the Range Rover came to a stop because its slashed tires went flat.

At least two bikers smashed the windows, dragged the father out, punched him and slashed him in the face and chest, sources said.

Police released a photo Tuesday morning of two suspects in the assault and slashing, which sent the father to the hospital for stitches on his face and chest. Lien, who also suffered two black eyes, was treated and released.
