Migrant mob allegedly pummeled NYPD cops checking on unattended children outside NYC homeless shelter: sources

A mob of migrants are facing gang assault charges after allegedly pummeling two NYPD cops outside a Queens hotel shelter, prosecutors and law enforcement sources said Tuesday.

Four men were busted after they attacked two of New York’s Finest shortly before 4:30 a.m. Monday as the cops were checking on three unattended children outside the converted Long Island City hotel that now houses asylum seekers, according to authorities.


“In an effort to check on the children’s safety, they approached a nearby group of adults to make sure that the children were being supervised,” Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz said in a statement.

Queens prosecutors said two NYPD cops were jumped and beaten by a migrant mob early Monday morning — and are still looking for at least one more suspect.


Law enforcement sources told The Post that all four suspects – Juan Munoz, 25; Alejandro Munoz, 42; Karina Navarro-Chavez, 42; and Miguel Chiluisa, 23 –are migrants housed at city-funded sites.

All four were arraigned Tuesday before Judge Edward Daniels on charges of assault, attempted assault, criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration.

Juan and Alejandro Munoz and Navarro-Chavez were also charged with child endangerment, while Chiluisa – who was tracked down and nabbed nearly an hour after fleeing the melee – is additionally charged with second and third-degree escape, prosecutors said.

A fifth suspect, a woman, hit one of the cops with a child’s bike but fled the scene.


The injured officers were treated at a local hospital for injuries including abrasions and shoulder pain.

The cowardly assault is similar to a Jan. 7 attack on two other NYPD cops in Times Square by a larger migrant mob, leading to indictments against seven of the asylum seekers.

In that caught-on-video incident, the officers were trying to get a large crowd to disperse when one of them grew violent and wrestled with the cops  with his pals coming to his aid and beating on the cops.
