Protestors return to scene of scary incident in Whitestone


A handful of protestors returned to the overpass at 160th Street and Cross Island Parkway on Wednesday afternoon, the day after a crazed man jumped out of his SUV with knives strapped to his arm and threatened them.

He eventually drove off, but did a U-turn and then drove up on the sidewalk as panicked protestors scattered.

This was after a Whitestone man – identified as Anthony Abicca by dozens of Twitter users – on Monday ripped down Black Lives Matter signs from the overpass while admitting that he was a racist.

Overnight, residents were caught on video clearing the overpass of other protest signs and stuffing them in trashcans.

On Wednesday afternoon, drivers honked in support of the protestors who returned to the site.
