“Video shows man with Wolverine-claws threaten protesters in Queens”

Two videos of the incident, which occurred Tuesday afternoon around 3:45 p.m. near Clintonville Street and the Cross Island Expressway service road, show the man jumping out of his car and brandishing a Wolverine-type claw — two large knives affixed to his hands — and yelling at demonstrators.
The activists were at the location affixing signs on the highway overpass and demonstrating against police brutality after an admitted racist, Anthony Abicca, was captured on video ripping down a single BLM sign earlier this week and hurling racial slurs.
In a second video, the man is seen getting back into his SUV, making a U-turn, and driving onto the sidewalk where he sped towards about a half dozen activists that were gathered, sending them sprinting away.
The man then drove off the sidewalk and left the scene.
“A 23-year-old male reported to police that and [sic] unidentified individual exited a vehicle with a sharp object and displayed it to a crowd that was peacefully protesting and fled in a vehicle described as a gray SUV mercury,” the NYPD told The Post in an emailed statement.
“There were no reported injuries as a result, no arrests at this time and the investigation is ongoing.”
