Arizona Arrests Not Linked To Times Square Officer Assault

Law enforcement officials are now retracting their previous announcement that the four migrants responsible for attacking two NYPD officers in Times Square had been arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Homeland Security at a Greyhound bus station in Phoenix.

It turns out that those individuals were not the violent illegal border-crossers ICE had been pursuing. Fox News stated late on Monday that ICE sources confirmed three of the migrants allegedly involved in the assault on the officers had indeed been apprehended in Arizona.

After the mob beating in New York, four migrants, Darwin Andres Gomez, Kelvin Servita Arocha, Wilson Juarez and Yorman Reveron were believed to be en route to California. They fled after being released without bail. Subsequently, Jhoan Boada, Jandry Barros and Yohenry Brito were later apprehended.

According to three senior law enforcement officials, as reported by NBC News, “The people in ICE custody do not match the identities or names of those involved in the New York attack.”

New York law enforcement officials state that the four individuals detained may be in the country illegally and subject to deportation. However, they clarify that these individuals are not the same four who were charged in connection with the assault.

Homeland Security informed the office of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who recently decided to release the suspects without bail, that the four individuals they apprehended were not linked to the New York City investigation.

A spokesperson for Bragg’s office said, “To date, we have not received any indication from federal authorities that they have detained anyone related to our case.”

Despite the assault being captured on video and widely circulated, Bragg initially asserted that there was insufficient evidence to detain the undocumented immigrants.

Bragg announced, “While the video is shocking and disturbing, in order to secure convictions in the court of law, it is essential that we conclusively identify each defendant. In a court of law, our profound obligation is to make sure we have the right people charged with the right crimes. I don’t think New Yorkers want to charge the wrong person.”

Bragg altered his stance after one of the suspects raised his middle finger at cameras while leaving a New York City jail.

Bragg said, “Our office continues to work with law enforcement to bring everyone responsible for these heinous attacks to justice. We are simultaneously preparing to present charges to the grand jury on Tuesday and will update the public as soon as legally permissible. We will not rest until every person who assaulted a police officer in this awful attack is held accountable.”
