Utica, N.Y. — Utica police are searching for a group of ATV riders who sped through the city Thursday evening, harassing officers and damaging property before escaping.

Police attempted to stop the group in Oneida Park around 5 p.m., but ended the pursuit when the riders began recklessly driving on sidewalks, Lt. Michael Curley said. The group included more than five riders, he said.
