Wagswoofs – The Bronx District Attorney’s Office recently revealed that two individuals from Westchester have been indicted for assaulting an NYPD Transit Lieutenant in Bronx, NY.
Brian Innocent, a 24-year-old resident of New Rochelle, and Marquise Webb, also 24 and from Yonkers, are being charged with First-Degree Assault and Assault on a Police Officer.
A fight broke out on the northbound No. 1 train at the 238th Street stop on November 11 at 8:55 p.m., and Lieutenant Gypsy Pichardo of Transit District 3 went to the scene. When the Lieutenant asked Innocent and Webb to leave the station, they struck him, which made the situation worse and seriously hurt the officer.
The defendants appeared before Bronx Supreme Court Justice Kim Parker, who set their bail at $5,000 cash and $20,000 bond. Their next court date is scheduled for February 27, 2024.
