Migrants Involved In Assaulting Police Officers In Times Square Are All Presented With Plea Deals

Six of the migrants accused in the brutal assault on two NYPD officers in Times Square were presented with plea deals on Tuesday, while a Manhattan judge disclosed that one of the individuals involved in attacking the officers had been arrested again while out on bail.

Yohenry Brito, 24, who had been remanded following his initial arrest, was apprehended last week for petit larceny after a Brooklyn activist priest posted his $15,000 cash bail back in February, Judge Laura Ward revealed in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday.

“I am furious that Mr. Brito was rearrested and charged with petty larceny while he was out on this case,” Ward fumed as she warned that another slipup would land him behind bars.

“I am very tempted right now to put you in jail. I am telling you right now, if I learn you are rearrested for anything at all between now and this case being finished, I will order a warrant and I will place bail so high, you will not get out,” she continued.

“If you jaywalk, if you jump a turnstile, if you do anything at all and I have to issue a warrant, you will not see the light of day until this case is over,” Ward declared.

She inquired if Brito comprehended, to which he affirmed “Yes” after the interpreter translated the remarks for him.

According to a criminal complaint, Brito purportedly attempted to steal children’s clothing and “fragrances” from Macy’s Herald Square flagship store on Friday night. He faces charges of petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property, both misdemeanors.

Two other migrants involved in the assault on the police officers, Kelvin Servita Arocha, 19, and Wilson Juarez, 21, have been offered a separate deal to serve six months in prison if they plead guilty to obstructing a government administration.

Prosecutors have also proposed a plea deal to Yorman Reveron, 24, that would result in a two-year prison sentence if he pleads guilty to second-degree assault, according to the DA’s office. However, the defendants’ lawyers have not yet accepted the plea agreements.

Ward instructed them to return to court on June 18, at which time a trial date will be set if no agreement is reached. An offer has not yet been extended to 20-year-old Edgarlis Vegas.

The seven migrants were indicted following the disturbing assault on the two officers, which was captured on camera when they attempted to disperse a rowdy crowd at the Crossroads of the World on Jan. 27. The video depicted the mob kicking the officers in the head and body before fleeing.

Juarez and Servita-Arocha are alleged members of the infamous Venezuelan street gang Tren de Aragua and are the subjects of ICE detainers.
