Manhattan man arrested for vicious attack on Asian woman

The Hard Truths of the Latest Anti Asian Attack

A man seen on video kicking and stamping on the woman on Monday was identified by police as Brandon Elliot, 38, of New York City.

"The staff who witnessed the attack have been suspended pending an investigation in conjunction with their union", the statement said. The attacker was able to casually walk away while onlookers watched, the video showed.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the attack was "horrifying and repugnant", adding that anti-Asian violence was becoming "an epidemic" across the country that "must stop now".

"If you see someone being attacked, do whatever you can", Cr de Blasio said.

The recent video also points to the results of another failure of civic responsibility on the part of our criminal justice system and political leadership: Mr. Elliot was on parole for the murder of his own mother when he attacked Ms. Kari, suggesting that he was not as compelling a candidate for reintegration into society as the parole board deemed him to be.

"The information we have at the moment is that the door staff, members of SEIU 32BJ, called for help immediately". "Solutions best come from community, and leaders outlined additional steps that we can take to best support the safety, community, and mental health needs of those in our community and impacted by acts of hate and bias".

The surge in violence has been linked in part to misplaced blame for coronavirus and former president Donald Trump's use of racially charged terms like "Chinese virus".

Police departments across the US are reporting an uptick in hate crimes and attacks on Asian-Americans and lawmakers and community leaders have been increasingly outspoken about the need for the federal government to do more to combat hate crimes. The 22-year-immigrant who graduated from New York University last year posted a photo of the envelope on Facebook that evening.

No lawsuits or claims for Suez blockage yet, shipowner says
The owners and insurers of the ship could be looking at claims totalling millions of dollars, Reuters reported. The canal was reopened for traffic Monday directly after the Ever Given was anchored at the Great Bitter Lake.

On Friday, in the same neighborhood as Monday's attack, a 65-year-old Asian American woman was accosted by a man waving an unknown object and shouting anti-Asian insults.

The department said there have been 33 hate crimes against people of Asian descent so far this year, news outlets reported. He is not suspected in Monday's attack.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called Monday's attack "absolutely disgusting and outrageous". No arrests have been made. The attack is being investigated as a hate crime. She was in stable condition on Tuesday, a hospital spokesperson said.

A group of building workers in the building's foyer can bee seen in the video watching the assault and then closing the door and doing nothing to help the woman. "I'm afraid if they hit me, I'll fall", she said. It may be recalled that six Asian women were killed in Atlanta alongside two other victims in rising hate crimes last week.

"You try to make sense of it, and you can't", NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said.

The neighbourhood where Monday's attack occurred, Hell's Kitchen, is predominantly white, with an Asian population of less than 20 per cent, according to city demographic data.

"Mr. Elliot is accused of brutally shoving, kicking, and stomping a 65-year-old mother to the ground after telling her that she didn't belong here", Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. said in a statement.
