An SUV gang assault that occurred last weekend has resulted in two bikers turning themselves in Friday for brutally injuring the driver of a Range Rover. CNN reports Oct. 6 that two bikers involved in chasing down Alexian Lien on Manhattan's West Side Highway and beating him up for accidentally bumping into one of the many bikers in their gang -- Christopher Cruz.
The report states that Robert Sims and Reginald Chase turned themselves in for the SUV gang assault. Chase was seen in the video pounding his helmet against the SUV window and Sims admitted to stomping on Lien's head and body as part of the merciless attack. He suffered several facial wounds and required several stitches.
In the beginning, Lien stopped to see how the biker was he accidentally hit, but the gang was angry and wanted to retaliate. Fearing for his life and that of his wife and two-year-old daughter, Lien stepped on the gas and hit three more bikers. The motorcyclists chased Lien down and that's when the SUV gang assault happened.
Sims has been charged with attempted assault, gang assault and criminal possession of a weapon. Chance is charged with first-degree assault and gang assault -- both felonies. His bail is set at $75,000 cash or $100,000 if secured by property. His next court appearance is set for Oct. 11.
One of the other bikers injured from the vehicle Lien was driving is identified as Edwin Mieses. His wife said he's paralyzed.
Chance's lawyer said his client is also a victim in the case.
Investigators are still trying to unravel the SUV gang assault incident, but more headway is being made.
