Last evening, two Maspeth kids were robbed of their bicycles and were allegedly assaulted inside the school yard of PS 58 The School of Heroes.
According to a Maspeth resident, who wishes to remain unidentified due to fear of retaliation, her son and his friends were riding their bikes on school property when the incident occurred.
A man inside a Lexus got out of his car and began chatting with the Maspeth kids. According to the source, two other men entered the yard on each side, and threw her son off his bike. Her son suffered cuts on his hands and knees.
The alleged perps then took the bike, and threatened her son’s friend to get off because they “have something in my pocket,” alluding to a weapon.
The two men left on the bikes, while the first suspect drove off in his car.
According to the source, police went to the school this morning to view surveillance footage.
A photo of her son’s bike can be seen above.
