NYPD Seeks Two People For Inciting To Riot In FNO Bleecker Street Chaos
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The NYPD is asking for your help identifying two people involved in the chaotic “Fashion’s Night Out” mob that trashed a man’s car.
On Sept. 6, at around 11 p.m., a mob scene broke out at the corner of Broadway and Bleecker Street. The driver of an Audi apparently exchanged words with a bicyclist.
The entire incident was caught on video.
WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC LANGUAGE
“People were surrounding this car,” freelance photographer Jika Gonzalez told 1010 WINS’ Steve Sandberg on Sept. 8. “They were running across it, jumping on it and dancing on it. It honestly seemed like they were just kids having fun, which is a little scary. It was definitely out of control, and I don’t think they were really considering their actions.”
The NYPD, however, is considering their actions.
They are looking for at least two of the participants for alleged criminal mischief and inciting to riot.
Police said the bicycle rider prevented the driver of the car from moving forward.
Another suspect, pictured above, allegedly jumped on the car, smashing windows and further damaging the car.
The driver was unharmed.
