The slippery slopes of soft-on-crime policies and sanctuary city status converged Saturday near New York City’s Times Square when two members of the NYPD were seen assaulted after urging a group of aliens to move along on West 42nd Street.
Video shared by law enforcement showed a lieutenant and an officer from the Midtown South Precinct enter the frame once more in the midst of a scuffle with a man in yellow as others circled appearing to pull, shove and strike at the cops around 8:30 p.m. before fleeing the scene.

Police confirmed that within hours four suspects had been arrested, each reportedly staying in one of the city’s shelters for aliens. They were identified as Darwin Andres Gomez Izquiel, 19; Kelvin Servat Arocha, 19; Juarez Wilson, 21; and Yorman Reveron, 24.
Though they were charged with Assault on a Police Officer, Gang Assault, Obstructing Governmental Administration and Disorderly Conduct, leftist policies permitted their release without bail after one officer was left with bruising and the other had sustained cuts to the face.
As it happened, the New York Post reported that Reveron already had two open cases for assault and robbery after he allegedly “pushed, punched and bit” an employee at Nordstrom Rack and also allegedly “punched with a closed fist” a loss prevention employee at Macy’s in Herald Square in November.
While the NYPD managed to arrest a fifth suspect, 22-year-old Jhoan Boada who was charged with attempted assault of a police officer, law enforcement continued to look for at least four others of whom images were released as they sought aid from the public in tracking them down.

The criminality from aliens has been a rising concern for citizens of Gotham as New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) squandered law enforcement resources to cover the exorbitant costs of sheltering the freeloading foreign nationals.
Violent incidents like stabbings at shelters had forced the city to increase security measures while nearby neighborhoods complained about shoplifting, panhandling, extortion and more being committed across the five boroughs.
Reacting to the latest display of lawlessness, Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Hendry released a statement that read, “Attacks on police officers are becoming an epidemic, and the reason is a revolving door we’re seeing in cases like this one.”
“It is impossible for police officers to deal effectively with crime and disorder if the justice system can’t or won’t protect us while we do that work,” he continued.
As backlash over the mob scene spread, with the aliens handed court dates as they were released, Manhattan District Attorney’s Office told Fox News Digital the investigation was ongoing and said in a statement, “We now have additional video surveillance that was not available at the time of arraignment and are continuing to speak to witnesses in order to determine the specific role of each defendant.”
At one point Americas greatest city , now a third world country.

What a sad husk of a once great city.
Leftists ruin everything they touch.
