7 Indicted For Attacking NYPD Officers At Times Square

•, by Allen Zhong

Yohenry Brito, 24, was charged with assault, obstruction, and evidence tampering.

Four others, 19-year-old Darwin Andres Gomez-Izquiel, 21-year-old Wilson Juarez, 19-year-old Kelvin Servita Arocha, and 24-year-old Yorman Reveron, were charged with assault and obstructing governmental administration.

The other two suspects have not been identified.

Mr. Bragg strongly condemned the attacks during the press conference.

"This assault sickens me and outrages me. We all rely on our members of the NYPD every day to keep us safe and keep this the safest big city in America," he said. "I do not tolerate attacks on our police officers."

Mr. Bragg has faced pressure since four others who had allegedly beaten police were released without bail, drawing criticism from New York Attorney General Letitia James and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul. He defended himself, saying more investigation was needed to tell who did what during that incident.

Mr. Bragg said Thursday that he's confident with the indictments after a thorough joint investigation between the NYPD and his office.

"Today's indictment follows a painstaking joint investigation between the NYPD and the Manhattan District Attorney's Office," he told reporters. "I stand here today confident that we have identified the roles of every person who broke the law and participated in this heinous attack."

The NYPD is still looking for two other suspects who were at the scene and has asked the public to help.

Anyone with information about these two suspects and the assault is encouraged to contact the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Just another sign that Trump is coming back. The question is, how do we keep a Trump government alive after Trump is gone?
