Police reported that a woman was punched in the face by a hate-filled brute at a Manhattan subway station over the weekend. The suspect allegedly said to her, “you are Jewish,” before committing the assault. The incident was reported by the New York Post.
According to authorities, the woman, who was 29 years old, was attacked by an unknown person while walking through the 7-train passageway at the 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue subway station at around 11:30 pm on Saturday. The attacker hit the woman forcefully, without any apparent provocation, before fleeing the scene.
According to the authorities, the victim was left in disbelief when her attacker punched her for no apparent reason. When she asked him why he did it, he callously replied, “you are Jewish,” before fleeing the scene.
The lady sustained only minor injuries.
Amidst the ongoing war between Hamas and Israel, a recent attack on Saturday has raised concerns of growing animosity towards both Jews and Muslims. The terrorist group’s surprise assault on the Jewish nation has fueled the deadly conflict, leaving a devastating impact on the region.
On the day of the subway station attack, another horrific incident took place in Illinois. A 71-year-old man stabbed a 6-year-old Palestinian-American child 26 times, leading to the child’s tragic death. This was a hate crime that was allegedly motivated by the child’s Muslim faith. The incident has shocked and saddened many, and serves as a reminder of the importance of combating hate and prejudice in our society.
The man’s tenants were, in fact, his family.
On Wednesday, the NYPD Hate Crimes Unit disclosed that they are currently investigating an assault and have released images of the suspected perpetrator. As per their statement, the unit is carrying out a thorough investigation to get to the bottom of this heinous crime. The released images may prove to be a vital piece of evidence in identifying and arresting the suspect.
