Video captures moment cyclists attack car in NYC


A group of bicyclists was caught on camera in #New #York #City attacking an SUV stopped in an intersection, smashing its hood, stomping on the windshield and punching the side windows — while the terrified driver sat inside with his mother.

A 15-year-old boy was arrested in connection with the attack on the BMW that was stopped on #Fifth #Avenue and #East 21st #Street in #Manhattan on #Tuesday afternoon when the group surrounded the car, police confirmed #Thursday.

The driver, who wanted only to be identified as #Max, 36, told NBC #News #New #York that he and his 74-year-old mother were fearful for their lives during the attack, which began after one of the cyclists bumped into the back of his car.

“I said to myself: let them destroy the car. #Let them take their anger out on the car,” he said.

#But, he said, the attack escalated with one of the group members shattering the windshield, showering the car’s occupants with glass. #Max said that’s when he found an opening, pulled ahead, and waited for police. NBC #News has not confirmed what happened before the video begins and has not spoken to the teen who has been charged in the attack.

The 15-year-old was facing charges of rioting and criminal mischief, police said.

#Police told NBC #New #York that they believe the incident is linked to another violent incident involving cyclists and a driver.

The #New #York #City #Police #Department said the investigation is ongoing.
