On January 27, while on patrol in Times Square, New York Police Department (NYPD) officers came across a gathering of migrants. Police can be seen on camera requesting that the men go on.

Then, to restrain the individual wearing a yellow jacket, the video showed the two officers holding them down. Before fleeing, the suspects were observed kicking the officers.

Darwin The suspects are Andres Gomez, 19, Yorman Reveron, 24, Wilson Juarez, 21, and Kelvin Servita Arocha, 19.

Jhoan Boada, 22, Yohenry Brito, 24, and Jandry Barros, 21, were also taken into custody for the attack.

According to a statement that Fox News was able to get on Saturday, Bragg’s office “continues to work with law enforcement to bring everyone responsible for these heinous attacks to justice.”

“It is clear from the video and other evidence that some of the most culpable individuals have not yet been identified or arrested, and we are working hand in hand with the NYPD to find and hold them accountable for their despicable acts,” Bragg said.

“We are simultaneously preparing to present charges to the Grand Jury on Tuesday and will update the public as soon as legally permissible,” he added. “We will not rest until every person who assaulted a police officer in this awful attack is held accountable.”

NYPD Commissioner Edward A. Caban referred to the individuals in another statement on Saturday as “cowards.”

“An attack against a police officer is an attack against our entire society,” Caban said. “The NYPD is thoroughly investigating this incident, which saw a group of cowards assault two uniformed officers tasked with protecting our community.”

“We will work tirelessly with the office of the Manhattan district attorney to identify and arrest every person who participated in this event,” he continued.

According to reports, Gomez, Arocha, Juarez, and Reveron were accused of assault but were later freed on no bond.

The group recently escaped to California after providing false identities to a nonprofit organisation that transports migrants, a law enforcement source told the New York Post. Since then, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol have filed warrants for the guys.

While Boada, who is also wanted, and Barros were released without bond, Brito is still in jail.
