Asian woman attacked, NYPD Hate Crimes Unit tracks suspect

The Hard Truths of the Latest Anti Asian Attack

Andrew Yang, the former Democratic presidential candidate who is running for New York City mayor, said in an interview with CNN that he believed the bystanders could have "done a lot of good" by interrupting the attack or seeking medical attention for the woman. Videos on social media showed the attacker kicking the woman in the stomach, knocking her to the ground and stamping on her at least three times before walking away without anyone trying to protect her.

The study showed a surge in cities such as NY, where anti-Asian hate crimes rose from three in 2019 to 28 in 2020, a 833 percent increase.

New York Police Department's Hate Crime Task Force has asked anyone with information to contact the department's confidential hotline or submit tips online.

"Make noise - call out what's happening".

They say the workers did call for help immediately, and are asking people to avoid rushing to judgement until all of the facts are determined.

However, Kyle Bragg, the president of the Employees International Union Local 32BJ, said in a statement to the news outlet that the security guard had "called for help immediately". "Solutions best come from community, and leaders outlined additional steps that we can take to best support the safety, community, and mental health needs of those in our community and impacted by acts of hate and bias. We can't just stand back and watch a heinous act happening". "The perpetrators of these crimes, including the attack last night, must be held fully accountable under all federal and state civil rights and hate crime laws".

The incident, one of two violent attacks captured on camera in New York City on Monday, was the latest in a wave of crimes against Asian Americans across the country. A 48-year-old man was arrested the following day and charged with menacing.

The attack, which took place on a sidewalk in broad daylight in Midtown Manhattan on Monday, was caught on CCTV footage from inside an adjacent building and showed bystanders seemingly looking on without intervening. The attack is being investigated as a hate crime. No arrests have been made.

Some Johnson & Johnson Covid Vaccine Doses Delayed in United States by Factory Mix-Up
A batch of Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine failed quality standards and can't be used, the drug giant said late Wednesday. Moving forward, J&J is moving to implement tighter controls at its manufacturing partner, the company's statement said.

The woman was hospitalized with serious injuries. She was listed in stable condition as of Monday evening, police said.

According to video footage of the assault Monday, two people who appeared to be security guards walked into the frame and one of them closed the building door as the woman was on the ground.

The building's owner punished the staff members who failed to offer any aid to her.

The company said that "the staff who witnessed the attack have been suspended pending an investigation in conjunction with their union". "The Brodsky Organization condemns all forms of discrimination, racism, xenophobia, and violence against the Asian American", officials wrote in a statement.

Police Commissioner Dermot Shea announced last week that the department would increase outreach and patrols in predominantly Asian communities, including the use of undercover officers to prevent and disrupt attacks.

The victim was identified as Vilma Kari, a 65-year-old woman who immigrated from the Philippines, her daughter told The New York Times; the newspaper did not identify Kari's daughter. Both incidents are believed to have occurred on Monday.

According to a report from Stop AAPI Hate, more than 3795 incidents were reported to the organization from March 19, 2020, to February 28.

New York City has already seen a rise in the number of hate crime directed at Asian Americans.
