NEW YORK -

Shocking video posted to YouTube from the helmet camera worn by a motorcyclist shows a pack of bikers attacking the driver of an SUV in Manhattan.

The incident began after a fender bender on the West Side Highway on Sunday afternoon.

The NY Post reports that Alexian Lien, 33, was driving a black Range Rover with his wife and young child inside when he struck a motorcycle that was in front of his car.

In the video, Lien is seen stopping the SUV after the fender bender but then speeding away and striking three motorcycles when the group began to damage his SUV.

Once the driver got off the highway at West 178th St. in Washington Heights the bikers attacked.

One person is seen taking off his helmet and striking the vehicle while another biker tries to punch through a window in the backseat where the child was seated.

The biker breaks through the window and Lien is dragged out of the car and assaulted, said NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly.

Lien suffered cuts to the face. A motorcyclist that was struck in the incident reportedly suffered a broken leg. No other injuries were reported by police.

One of the bikers had a flag sticker of Guyana on the back of his motorcycle, said police. Authorities say the bikers were in the city for an event called Hollywood Stuntz, where they intended to drive around Manhattan doing tricks, NBC New York reports.

Kelly said authorities are trying to identify some of bikers in the attack, but they did not have license plates on their motorcycles, the NY Daily News reports
