65 Year Old Woman Attacked in NY, Suspect Arrested
A man now behind bars after a vicious attack on an Asian American woman this Monday.
This happened while police claimed he shouted anti-Asian slurs at her.
The attack happened outside an apartment building two blocks from the busy Times Square.
Two workers inside the building who appeared to be security guards were seen on the surveillance video witnessing the attack but failing to come to the woman’s aid.
Their union said they called for help immediately.
The attacker was able to casually walk away while onlookers watched, the video showed.
The surge in violence has been linked in part to misplaced blame for the coronavirus and racially charged terms like “Chinese virus.”
He was charged with several counts relating to the hate crime this morning.
