YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Cliffside Park police grabbed a trio of Guatemalan nationals who they said attacked three men with beer bottles before fleeing with $200 in cash, CLIFFVIEW PILOT has learned.

All three face deportation after being arrested before dawn Sunday following the Palisade Avenue mugging.

A 30-year-old victim sustained a serious gash on his forehead in the attack, police said.

Officers who rushed to the scene  near Jersey Avenue just after 2:45 a.m. got help from a bouncer at a nearby tavern who witnessed the attack.

As a result, they found all three suspects two blocks away, on Walker Street, Detective Capt. Michael Russo told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

“They still had blood on their clothing and hands,” Russo said.

Brothers Juan and Hugo Osorio are charged with aggravated assault with a weapon and illegal weapons possession.

In addition, 35-year-old Juan Osorio ( top, left ), who was injured in the incident, is charged with robbery and Hugo Osorio, 25, with conspiracy.
