Traffic agent is menaced in East Village

Two jerks menaced a New York Police Department traffic agent in the East Village, flashing a knife at him, police said.

According to police, on Sat., April 1, around 8:15 a.m. two unknown males began yelling at an on-duty N.Y.P.D. traffic enforcement agent while he was on the job at 297 E. Third St., between Avenues C and D. One of the harassers spit in the agent’s direction, began throwing garbage at him and then shoved him through a closed door, while his sidekick then brandished a blade at the victim. The pair fled eastbound on Third Street. The victim did not sustain any injuries.

The two suspects were both dressed all in black and wore hoods. One had a gold-colored bicycle. The other had a green bag slung across his chest.

Police ask that anyone with information call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). Tips can also be submitted on the Crime Stoppers Web site at or on Twitter @NYPDTips. Tips can result in rewards of up to $3,500. All tips are confidential.
