Asian American woman, 65, assaulted in NY as others watch

Surveillance footage from a building next to the sidewalk where the victim was attacked shows a witness failing to render aid.

The New York City Police Department (NYPD) released the video after the 65-year-old woman was assaulted on Monday afternoon, suffering serious injuries. Security guards loitering in the lobby of the building, owned by Brodsky Organization, are seen watching the attack while doing nothing.

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.

The man then stomps on the woman's face several times while shouting anti-Asian statements at her, police said. Later, two more men wearing blazers walk into the frame, and one of them closes the door as the woman lies on the ground.

"I don't care who you are, I don't care what you do, you've got to help your fellow New Yorker", he said at his daily news briefing.

"Asian Americans for too long in this country have been shamefully scapegoated because of ignorant fear", New York Rep. Grace Meng said. She was in stable condition on Tuesday, a hospital spokesperson said.

In a statement following the incident, the Brodsky Organization, the company that owns the apartment building, announced it had suspended the staff members who witnessed the attack. Immediately call for help. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

A man was caught on video attacking and repeatedly punching an Asian man on a Brooklyn train.

The incident comes amidst a dramatic rise in hate crimes targeting Asian Americans, and is not the only high-profile attack to have taken place in New York City in recent days - or on Monday alone.

"I don't know who attacks a 65-year-old woman and leaves her on the street like that", he told TV station NY1 on Tuesday.

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

Over 3,800 hateful incidents against Asians, mostly women, have been carried out in the United States between 19 March 2020 and 28 February 2021, according to a report by Stop AAPI Hate.

The organization said the number was "only a fraction of the number of hate incidents that actually occur".
