A man who was travelling with his wife and 5-month old child was attacked by a gang of bikers after a high-speed chase down a New York street on Sunday afternoon.
Though the reason for the chase is unclear, a video footage filmed by one of the bikers’ cams was uploaded to YouTube, and it tells the tale of what went down on the West Side Highway.
In the 6-minute video, the large gang surrounds the black Range Rover and the man – obviously fearing for his life and that of his wife and child – speeds off, knocking down two bikers. The gang then gives him a hot chase and catches up with him at a stop sign.
After one of the bikers attempts to lay his hand on the man by opening the driver’s side, the Range Rover speeds off again, and the bikers follow it in hot pursuit, eventually catching up with him in a traffic stop inside Manhattan. Then one biker pulls off his helmet and smashes the driver’s window, while another tries to smash the back door window – and the 5-month old child was at the back seat of the car.
According to NYPD who confirmed the incident, the man – identified as 33-year old Alexian Lien – was attacked after he hit one cyclist. The official said Lien was beaten up by the gang, who left him with lacerations on his face and body. He has been treated and released.
No arrests has so far been made as the case is still under investigation.
