A hammer-wielding attacker told an Asian woman to remove her mask and then bashed the victim in the head in Manhattan on Sunday night, police said.
The 31-year-old victim was on 42nd Street near Ninth Avenue when an unknown woman approached around 8:45 p.m.
“Take off your mask,” the unknown woman told the victim, according to police.
She then hit the victim with a hammer, causing lacerations to the head.
The victim, who was hospitalized, is not likely to die, officials said.
NYPD investigators said they were looking into the incident as a bias crime.



This and other attacks like this have been happening way too many times. It's almost on par with mass shooting now. WTF is going on?

Lots of people see Asians as though they were child molesters. Such people feel perfectly entitled to take such actions. People just love overlooking their own evil when they can make an excuse they are doing what is good. Not sure why you needed to ask.

Interesting that you seem to imply that right wingers are the ones with the problems with Asians.
They had a problem with Asians AND masks.

Only one party has cornered the market in racism, xenophobia AND science denialism.

What is truly interesting here is you seem to imply it could be anything but a right-winger.

I thought Republicans were like Sasquatches in NYC.

Haven't been in the City since the pandemic started but all I needed to know was this.

That's right by the port authority bus terminal.
For as long as I've worked in the city the area around Port Authority is crazy town.

Knowing the area and the local shitheads common to that area I'm not surprised the mental patients on the loose their have latched their craziness onto Asians.

From NYC Police Hate Crimes Division, look like a lot of "right wingers" attacked women and elders of Asian ancestry. So much open mind and love, eh? Uh huh.


NYPD Hate Crimes (@NYPDHateCrimes) / Twitter

This one takes the cake, kicked a frail and old Asian woman not once, not twice, but several times in the head while everyone just looked, two guys even tried to close the door.

NYPD Hate Crimes on Twitter: "Help identify the below individual wanted in connection to an assault. On Monday, March 29th at 11:40 AM, at 360 West 43rd St, a female, 65, was approached by an unidentified male who punched and kicked her about the body and made anti-Asian statements.

Well, those white supremacist idiot trumpers certainly have become more culturally diverse over the past few months, haven't they?
The only other possible explanation is that the media is full of shit, but we know that couldn't possibly be true.
Carry on.

It don't matter what gender, what race, what state of mind these attackers are all in. They are bad, and only one political tribe has made it a goal to inflame anti Asian and anti immigrant rhetoric the last years. Only one party is inspiration for this kind of action.

Trump won 23% of the vote in NYC. When it's a city of over 8 million, that's a lot of deplorables, or those who are apolitical but influenced by deplorable rhetoric.

Right wingers are the only ones fomenting racial hatred. For the record pointing our racist behavior is not the real racism

Most of the city is about 80-20 in favor of Democrats but 20% of 8 million people still means about 1.6 million Republicans, more than exist in a number of red states. Also, Staten Island is majority Republican.

What are you saying? Black people can't be conservatives and/or Trump supporters? Black people don't watch Fox News? There are no black right-wingers?

The amount of sway Faux News has on most black people is nonexistent. And if they do swing over, it's for the pro-business portion of the platform. Meaning, they come over because they sip wine and are too educated or making money via business....

Sometimes groups of conservative bent can even provide resources for Asians, such as the Pacific Legal Foundation suing a Virginia school for changing their admissions policy to get more Blacks and Hispanics into that school.
