The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating an unprovoked attack in which the perpetrator allegedly shouted anti-Asian remarks at a 7-train rider before assaulting him at the Queensboro Plaza subway station in Long Island City last month.

The 31-year-old male victim was standing in the mezzanine level at the Queensboro Plaza South subway station just after noon on Saturday, July 22, when he was approached by a stranger who began shouting anti-Asian statements before striking the victim in the left side of his face several times with a closed fist, police said.

The assailant ran off to parts unknown and the victim sustained bruising and pain to the left side of his face but refused medical attention at the crime scene, according to authorities.

The NYPD released surveillance video of the suspect that showed him coming through the turnstile at the station.

He is believed to be between 30 and 40 years old and has a dark complexion. He is approximately 6 feet tall and 180 pounds and was last seen wearing a black jean jacket, black shorts, white socks, white and black sneakers and a white baseball cap.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.

All we see in this city are racist incidents involving Black people as perpetrators but nothing is ever mentioned by Black leaders or white liberals. I guess because Blacks have been persecuted they can do the same. In this world 2 wrongs make a right.

Not surprising to see this type of behavior from them. Liberals will claim he’s mentally ill but we all know it’s their nature.

that’s ok, progressive liberals such as AOC, Caban and the goon squad support crime if you are the right color. asians need to start carrying weapons and defend themselves at all costs.

What a shock! A black man assaulting someone in NYC. Good thing we have a mayor, DA and other politicians that won’t do a damn thing about these regular racist and violent acts.
