Teen drives through crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters, injures two

A teenager out on bond for an armed robbery arrest drove through a crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters in Manhattan — striking two bike-riding demonstrators, The Post has learned.

The driver of the black Infiniti, Victor Kent, hit the two protesters on 5th Avenue between E. 25th and E. 26th streets in Flatiron just after 5:15 p.m. on Monday, and kept on going, according to police and sources.

The two protesters were knocked off their bikes and suffered minor injuries, police and sources said. One was taken to Bellevue and another refused medical attention, police said.

Cops tracked down the 18-year-old at 10 p.m., charging him with assault and leaving the scene of an accident, the sources added.

Kent has been out on a $5,000 bond since Sept. 2 after being arrested over an armed robbery in East New York, court records show. He is facing five felonies charges as well as misdemeanors in connection to the July 16 incident, court records show.

Police sources told The Post Kent has eight prior arrests.
