The New York City Police Department is asking for the public's help in tracking down a group of bikers who took over part of a Manhattan street over the weekend.

Police say they took over a section of Broadway in Washington Heights shortly before 4 p.m. Sunday.

The NYPD says they stopped traffic in both directions and rode their motorcycles and ATVs in a way that threatened public safety.

The people police are looking for are wanted for reckless endangerment.

Another group of bikers made headlines last year when they were caught on video attacking an SUV driver after he hit one of their members on the Henry Hudson parkway.

Several bikers were arrested in that incident, including a number of city officers.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
