An older white man, apparently furious at Black Lives Matter demonstrators in Whitestone, Queens, threatened them with knives and then plowed his SUV onto the sidewalk where they were demonstrating, sending the activists running for their lives, according to police and video.

Two videos of the incident, which occurred around 3:45 p.m. Tuesday near Clintonville Street and the Cross Island Expressway service road, show the man jumping out of his car and brandishing a Wolverine-type claw — two large knives affixed to his hands — and yelling at demonstrators.

The article goes on to state the following:

The activists were at the location affixing signs on the highway overpass and demonstrating against police brutality after an admitted racist, Anthony Abicca, was captured on video ripping down a single BLM sign earlier this week and hurling racial slurs.

In video posted to Instagram, the man is seen from another angle as he gets back in his car, then drives up onto the sidewalk to speed toward activists.

The report does not indicate if there were injuries.

WATCH (WARNING: THE VIDEO CONTAINS PROFANITY):
