Police are looking for two men who were involved in a brazen attack in Harlem last week.
Security camera video shows the driver of a BMW deliberately jumping the curb and driving into a man and a boy—and then the driver getting out of the car to slash the man.
The shocking incident took place at 3:43 p.m. on November 6th, in front of 128 West 112th Street. According to the NYPD, the victim, a 32-year-old man, was walking with his 8-year-old son on the sidewalk when they were struck by the driver. The father and son fell through a gate, and then police say the driver "proceeded to exit the vehicle, slashed the adult male, and fled eastbound on 112th Street."
Video shows a passenger in the car also getting out and watching the assault.
The father and son were taken to NYC Health & Hospitals/Harlem with non-life threatening injuries, according to police.
WABC 7 reports, "Police assume this was a targeted hit - possibly gang-related." And police sources tell the Daily News that the adult victim "was so adamant about refusing to help police catch his attackers that the young boy’s mother had to file a police report alleging he was the victim of a crime."
Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the males is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
