NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police have arrested a wanted female suspect in the assault of two NYPD lieutenants on the Brooklyn Bridge during protests of the Eric Garner grand jury decision.
Police say 29-year-old Cindy Gorn, of Brooklyn, has been charged with resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration and rioting.
Gorn was identified as “female suspect #2.”
On Saturday, Zachary Campbell, 32, turned himself into police and faces the same charges as Gorn.
Suspects Maria Garcia and Robert Murray have also been charged in connection with the assault.
NYPD Chief of Manhattan Detectives William Aubry said Murray is the man seen punching Lt. Philip Chan twice.
“His acts are violent, and they’re right up there with being one of the most violent acts that I’ve seen,” said Aubry.
On Sunday, police arrested Baruch College professor Eric Linsker. Investigators said he triggered the melee when he tried to throw metal garbage cans over the bridge railing at officers.
As the lieutenants tried to arrest Linsker, police said the other suspects charged at them before running away.
Three suspects remain at large.
The reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects has grown to $25,000.
Anyone with information about the suspects or anyone who has additional cell phone photos or videos is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (8477), visit the Crime Stoppers website or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
