    Wednesday, March 26, 2008 06:30 PM - WBEN Newsroom
    Buffalo, NY (WBEN) - Buffalo Police Commissioner McCarthy Gipson is issuing an alert tonight. Gipson says a gang from Central America may be recruiting members here in Western New York.
    Gipson says part of that initiation is staging rear-end collisions. Gipson warns if this happens to you as you drive, don't get out of the vehicle. Instead, he suggests calling 911 and asking for a uniformed officer response, or you can drive to the nearest police station.
    Gipson says the gang is making its first stop in Western New York, and has a reputation for violence to citizens and law enforcement. In fact, Gipson warns there is credible evidence the rear end collision may be a prelude to robbery and/or assault.
