Two New York City men who tried to intervene when migrants began throwing objects at people on the sidewalk in Harlem outside a shelter were hospitalized, with one pushed through a glass door on Sunday morning.

The New York City Police Department said officers were responding to reports of an attack and heard that a group of men attacked pedestrians by throwing objects at them.

The incident took place in the Central Park North and Madison Avenue area, near an old prison that had been converted into a shelter for asylum seekers.

According to police, a 35-year-old man left his apartment and confronted the group, but was eventually punched and kicked by the attackers. The New York Post reported that witnesses said the group pushed the man through a glass door.

New York City has been overwhelmed over the past year with tens of thousands of migrants pouring into its five boroughs.

More than 90,000 asylum seekers have sought shelter in the city so far, according to the mayor’s office. Most migrants entered the US through the southern border.
