Lockport gang members suspected in Snyder Drive attack

TOWN OF LOCKPORT – Police believe that Lockport gang members were responsible for the attack Wednesday night on a man in the Snyder Drive area.

The victim told authorities he was riding a bicycle about 9:25 p.m. when a car pulled up and someone yelled, “There he is!” Then, several men left the car and one tried to stab the victim, inflicting a minor wound to his left hand before the man was able to escape and alert authorities.

Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies said the assailants may have been the same men who attacked the victim’s brother about two weeks ago.
