Illegal immigrant charged with beating NYPD officers afraid of being attacked in prison

Reveron and his family are "afraid to come to court" and he wants to be let free. He is also accused of biting and punching retail store employees.


On Friday, legal representation for one of the illegal immigrants accused of assaulting New York City police officers, Yorman Reveron, 24, from Venezuela, claimed that he is afraid of being assaulted in jail and should be freed while awaiting trial. 

During the hearing, attorney Roberto Perez argued Reveron and his family are "afraid to come to court" after he "received numerous death threats on social media in regards to this case." He added, “They are, to be frank, afraid to come to court."

Judge Ruth Pickholtz responded, “It’s clear that Mr. Reveron has been here one year and already had two interactions with the law: petit larcenies and assaultive behavior." She noted, "And while he was out on supervised release, he continued in this case. So, bail is appropriate at this time." 

Reveron was one of five suspects who were indicted on Friday for allegedly attacking two NYPD officers in Times Square last month. Judge Pickholtz ordered his bail to be set at $100,000. His is also accused of stealing pants from a Nordstrom Rack as well as punching and biting an employee in the process last November. In addition, he is accused of punching another store employee at a Macy's just before Christmas. 

As for the others, bail was placed at $50,000 for Darwin Andres Gomez-Izquiel, $15,000 for Kelvin Servita Arocha and Yohenry Brito, and $1 for Wilson Juarez who will remain in ICE custody, according to Fox 5

Police Benevolent Association president Patrick Hendry told the outlet, "Our criminal justice system did its job. These individuals are all behind bars where they belong." He added, "They should've never been released. The DA in the case should've requested bail. The judge should've kept them behind bars."

In a statement reacting to the indictments, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg said, "The assault on our police officers in Times Square was despicable and we do not tolerate this type of attack." He added, "The seven defendants indicted have now appeared in court, and because of our thorough investigation we can present our case and hold them fully accountable for their actions."

While awaiting arraignment, 19-year-old Darwin Andres Gomez-Izquiel was arrested again for allegedly robbing a Macy's in Queens and stealing $608 worth of clothes. He was charged with robbery and petit larceny.

"One of the migrants who assaulted our officers last week in Times Square is back at it again," NYPD Deputy Commissioner Kaz Daughtry revealed on X. "This time he was part of a group that robbed a department store in Queens. They also assaulted an employee. Different borough, different crime — same disregard for the law. This is the last thing NYers need."

DA Bragg previously defended his decision to release the alleged attackers without bail. He said, "While the video is shocking and disturbing, in order to secure convictions in a court of law it is essential that we conclusively identify each defendant and specify each person’s participation in the incident."
