    Alvin Bragg indicts 7 migrants accused of attacking NYPD officers — only after critics torch DA for no-bail release

    Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) announced Thursday new charges against seven illegal immigrants accused of viciously attacking New York Police Department officers last month, the New York Post reported.

    On January 27, surveillance footage captured a large group of men outside a migrant shelter kicking and punching two NYPD officers, Blaze News previously reported.

    During a Thursday news conference, the notoriously soft-on-crime DA stated that the horrendous crime committed by the mob of migrants “sickened” and “outraged” him. He called the attack “despicable” and “heinous.”

    Bragg announced that three of the suspects, including Yoherny Brito, 19, Darwin Andres Gomez-Izquiel, 19, and Yorman Reveron, 24, were charged with two counts of assault in the second degree, which is a class D felony. Another suspect, 19-year-old Kelvin Servita Arocha, was charged with two counts of assault for allegedly kicking equipment belonging to the NYPD. Wilson Juarez, 21, was accused of tampering with physical evidence for allegedly throwing his jacket over one of the aggressors in what appeared to be an attempt to disguise the individual. Juarez was charged with a class E felony.

    Brito is the only suspect currently in custody. According to Bragg, three additional suspects remain at large.

    The DA was torched by critics after several of the suspects were apprehended and then immediately released from custody without bail. Some of those individuals fled the city and were believed to be headed to California. Several of the illegal migrants were apprehended Monday in Phoenix, Arizona, Blaze News previously reported.

    Kenneth Genalo, the director of ICE’s New York field office, slammed New York City’s “sanctuary” policy for hindering the agency’s attempts to detain the suspects.

    “We want to help. The problem is, due to city policies and state law, cooperation is no longer afforded between NYPD and ICE,” Genalo explained. “There’s hundreds of people a week that are being arrested throughout the city and we can’t determine which are the most violent.”

    Bragg continued to defend his decision to release the suspected violent criminals back onto the streets of New York City. According to the DA, the chaotic surveillance footage made it difficult for investigators to identify and determine who had done what during the assault.

    “The only thing worse than failing to bring perpetrators to justice is if we ensnare innocent people in the criminal justice system,” he stated.

    New York Republican lawmakers are urging Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul to remove Bragg for putting innocent lives at risk by allowing the suspects to go free. In a Tuesday letter to the governor, lawmakers called Bragg’s handling of the incident “unconscionable” and “the last straw.”


    And, yes, I'm fully aware this article is "ablaze", but either it's true or it isn't - or some parts are true or they are not.

    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

    Yes, it is pretty spot on, I get the New York stations here.

      Body cam footage of NYPD officers being attacked by illegal immigrants released

      More on this, including body cam footage in the link above.

      The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office released police body camera footage on Thursday showing the attack on two NYPD officers in Times Square by illegal immigrants.

      The video shows the two officers approaching the group, asking them to move off the sidewalk. One officer approached suspect Yohenry Brito, who was wearing yellow, who pushed an officer’s hand out of the way in an attempt to move the suspect from the center of the sidewalk toward the building, according to ABC 7.

      While one officer stood with Brito against the building, Brito appears to break free, and the two officers attempt to apprehend him. Some members of the group were seen kicking the officers as they were on the ground with Brito.

      The release of the footage came as Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg announced that seven people in the group have been indicted. Brito, Darwin Andres Gomez-Izuiel, Yorman Reveron, and Kelvin Servita Arocha have been charged with assault in the second degree, a class D felony, and obstructing governmental administration in the second degree, a class A felony.

      Wilson Juarez and Brito were both charged with tampering with physical evidence, a class E felony, and hindering prosecution in the third degree, a class A misdemeanor. The names of two others charged in the indictment were sealed.

      Bragg came under fire after many arrested suspects, minus Brito, were released without bail. Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed on Tuesday that several of the released suspects were arrested in Phoenix.

        That's it? The way I was hearing it described, this was a brutal several-minute beating that hospitalized the officers. This video seems more like a 10-second skirmish without any injuries. Doesn't this sort of thing occur relatively often?

          D.A. Bragg: Seven Indicted In Assault On Police Officers In Times Square
          .
          Over the last several days, there have been rumors that the four individuals above left the City and were taken into custody by federal authorities. The Manhattan D.A.’s Office was informed by Homeland Security Investigations on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, that the four individuals they took into custody were not affiliated with the New York City investigation. To date, the Office has not received any indication from federal authorities that they have detained any individual related to the Office’s case.

          I'm inclined to believe the press release on this one. I'm not seeing any indication they were undocumented, either.

              Unfortunately we'll be reading a lot more stories like this. And they will tend to keep reminding us of two issues -- crime and the border.
