Two female bruisers pummeled a woman after a fender bender at Broadway and Battery streets Thursday night, cops said.
The alleged punks, ages 22 and 23, punched the 29-year-old victim six times “in the head and face” after the traffic collision, which occurred near midnight, police said. The assailants were passengers in one of the vehicles involved in the crash, police Officer Albie Esparza said. Arrests were made after the incident, he said.
The victim suffered “redness and swelling” to her face, but her injuries were not life-threatening, police said.
Further information was not immediately available, cops said.
The incident may have been a second example of road rage that became violent in just over 24 hours. A 52-year-old man was fighting for his life after falling and hitting his head on the ground during a brutal brawl with a motorist at 18th and Missouri streets Wednesday, police said.
