Illegal Migrants Arrested In Phoenix Did Not Assault NYPD Officers

A spokesman for ICE announced on Tuesday night that the four illegal immigrants captured in Phoenix, Arizona, were not the four suspected of being part of the group that beat two NYPD officers late last month.

Originally, ICE sources told several news outlets that the four men who fled New York City were arrested at the Greyhound bus station in Phoenix.

According to three law enforcement officials, the four men captured, whose identities have not been released, did not match the suspects wanted in New York City.

Darwin Andres Gomez, 19, Kelvin Servita Arocha, 19, Wilson Juarez, 21 and Yorman Reveron, 24 are presumed to have fled to California with the unknown help of a church-affiliated non-profit, according to the New York Post.

The four suspects were released from custody on Jan. 28. After their release, nothing stated that the illegal immigrants had to stay in New York City.

Progressive Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who released the criminals without bail, stated that he would make sure they were brought to justice, that is, after stating there wasn’t enough evidence to identify them, even after police ID’d them.

“Our office continues to work with law enforcement to bring everyone responsible for these heinous attacks to justice,” he said last weekend. “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.”

On Thursday, Bragg finally indicted seven of the suspects. Currently, Yoherny Brito, 19, is the only suspect in custody.

The suspect’s next court date is next month, but there is little chance that they will come back to New York City. John Miller, the former deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism of the NYPD, stated that the suspects could be heading to Calexico, California which sits on the Mexico border.

“The chances of that happening when four people get on a bus with false names and head for the city that literally you can cross the street into the Mexican border is probably unlikely,” said Miller.
