Asian woman, 65, knocked down, repeatedly kicked as witnesses appear to watch

NYPD Hate Crimes unit asking for public's help with solving brutal assault on Asian man

A 65-year-old woman of Asian descent was assaulted on her way to church in New York City Monday, and the CCTV footage of the incident has gone viral.

© NYPD The New York City Police Department is seeking the public's help in identifying a man who was caught on video repeatedly kicking a 65-year-old Asian American woman in Midtown Manhattan on March 29, 2021.

The incident immediately sparked outcry on social media, and even before police released video, elected officials had convened in Queens to condemn the attack. NY city launched plans last week to deploy an all-Asian undercover police team to combat a rise in hate crimes against Asians, which included shooting attacks at Atlanta-area spas this month in which six Asian women were killed.

The victim was reportedly hospitalized at the NYU Langone Medical Center with serious injuries.

The issue gained national attention earlier this month after six Asian American women and two others were murdered by a gunman who attacked massage parlors in Atlanta.

The New York Post reported that the NYPD is still waiting for the victim to come forward before determining if there was bias in the incident.

"If you see someone being attacked, do whatever you can", he said.

Scott Stringer, New York City's comptroller and mayoral candidate, called the attack "absolutely disgusting". One of them then shuts the door as the suspect walks away and the woman is left on the ground.

The NYPD says they are trying to find the attacker and figure out what exactly happened. "The staff who witnessed the attack have been suspended pending an investigation in conjunction with their union".

NY accounted for the largest surge from three in 2019 to 28 in 2020, a 833 percent increase in anti-Asian hate crimes.

"These attacks against Asian-American New Yorkers must end", he tweeted.

Shea recently said the agency would increase its outreach and patrols in predominantly Asian communities.

According to a report from Stop AAPI Hate, more than 3,795 incidents were reported to the organisation from March 19 last year to February 28 this year, but that is "only a fraction of the number of hate incidents that actually occur".
