SEE IT: Motorcyclist armed with gun and knife threatens driver he says cut him off on NYC’s Brooklyn-Queens Expressway
Cops say they are looking for a gun-totting motorcycle driver after road rage incident on Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
An armed motorcyclist threatened to shoot and stab a driver he believed cut him off on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, police said Tuesday.
The biker went berserk when the driver changed lanes on the BQE near the Flushing Ave. exit in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, about 2:20 p.m. Monday.
The hothead ordered the driver to stop in the busy expressway’s middle lane, positioning his motorcycle in front of the vehicle, cops said.
Complaining the driver had cut him off, he pulled up his shirt to show the butt of a gun in his waistband and pulled a knife before getting back on his bike and motoring off, cops said.
The 41-year-old driver’s pregnant wife managed to record on her cellphone the motorcyclist riding off allegedly flashed the weapons. Police released that video Tuesday and asked the public’s help identifying the bold biker and tracking him down.
The suspect is described as Hispanic, about 30 and 5-foot-8 with black hair, a black beard and tattoos on both arms. He was wearing a motorcycle helmet and a red T-shirt emblazoned with a roofer’s union logo.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
