Alvin Bragg seeks high bail for illegal migrants accused of attacking police

 February 18, 2024

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has long been a vocal defender of New York's catch and release approach when it comes to bail for accused criminals.

Yet according to Fox News, Bragg recently folded on the issue when he sought a hefty bail figure for a group of illegal migrants who allegedly attacked police.

Alleged perpetrators previously fled to California after being released without bail

The incident in question took place late last month and involved at least seven men who brutally beat up a pair of NYPD officers near Times Square.

That led to the arrest of 19-year-old Darwin Andres Gomez-Izquiel, 19-year-old Kelvin Servita Arocha, 21-year-old Wilson Omar Juarez-Aguilarte, and 24-year-old Yorman Reveron.

However, all four were later released without bail and then fled to California before subsequently being arrested. Fox News reported that 22-year-old Jhoan Boada, 21-year-old Jandry Barros, and 24-year-old Yohenry Brito have since also been arrested in connection with the attack.

One of the accused men was supposed to have been deported a year ago

The network noted that a judge has ordered Reveron to come up with either $100,000 for bail or a $250,000 bond if he wishes to be released.

What's more, Bragg's office is asking that bail be set at between $15,000 and $50,000 for some of the other accused criminals.

Interestingly, Fox News pointed out that Juarez-Aguilarte was supposed to have been deported a year ago and is currently being held in ICE custody.

Meanwhile, Gomez-Izquiel is also accused of having made off with some $600 worth of merchandise from a Macy's store shortly after his release. Like Reveron, he has been ordered to pay either $100,000 for bail or a $250,000 bond.

Teenaged illegal migrant accused of shooting Brazilian tourist while robbing store

This was not the only recent high profile crime involving illegal aliens to play out in recent weeks, as a 15-year-old migrant was charged with attempted murder just over a weekend ago.

According to Fox News, Jesus Alejandro Rivas-Figureoa has also been charged with assault, attempted assault, and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

Authorities say that Rivas-Figueroa shot at a clothing store security guard near West 42nd Street and Broadway. While he allegedly missed his intended victim, the bullet went on to strike a tourist visiting from Brazil.
