The biker gang SUV attack last Sunday has led to two more suspects in custody, and one charged with gang assault.
An SUV containing the family of Alexian Lien had been pulled into a major incident when motorcyclist Christopher Cruz pulled in front of them and stopped suddenly, causing the SUV to hit him. After the biker began throwing a fit over what was his mistake, two other bikers were drawn into the act of leaving their bikes and beating the driver in front of his wife and small child. Christopher Cruz was arrested shortly afterward, as previously reported by The Inquisitr.
Now the New York Police Department has two more bikers in custody for the biker gang SUV attack. Robert Sims of Brooklyn was charged with gang assault as one of the men who attacked SUV driver Alexian Lien. He was also charged with possession of a weapon and several other offenses for his role in the beating.
Reginald Chance was the other biker taken into custody, and is said to be the one beating his shiny helmet against the larger vehicle and smashing the driver’s side window.
A fourth biker had been seriously wounded as he was crushed under the weight of the SUV. Edwin Mieses Jr. of Massachusetts was hospitalized with a broken spine and his family states that he will be paralyzed for life. What led to him being run over was the SUV driver’s attempt to flee the scene before being pulled out of the vehicle and beaten. In what was probably a state of panic, Alexian Lien knocked over three more bikers, one of which was Mieses, who was said to be trying to get the other bikers to leave the family alone.
The two new men in custody over the biker gang SUV attack turned themselves in on Friday, showing that the bikers understand their responsibility in the attack. Edwin Mieses Jr.’s family blames the SUV driver, but Alexian Lien has not been charged.
