MANHATTAN - Police say that an arrest has been made in connection to a violent motorcycle-gang chase in Manhattan on Sunday.

Video from a biker's helmet cam shows what happened on Sunday afternoon on the West Side Highway.

The video allegedly shows bikers boxing in an SUV, and then one biker stopping in front of the Range Rover.  The SUV driver hit the motorcyclist and was then surrounded by the rest of motorcycles.

The father behind the wheel of the Range Rover hit two more bikers after he tried to get away with his wife and toddler.

When the father got stuck in midtown traffic, the gang allegedly surrounded him, smashed his windows, got him out of the car and beat and cut him until he needed stitches on his face and chest.

The biker that the man hit has been arrested.
