The NYPD Crime Stoppers released video of a horrendous attack on a 75-year old Asian American woman.
In the video, you can see a man seemingly punch the woman in the face as he walks by her.
WABC reports the attack left the woman with a fractured bone near one of her eyes.
According to the New York Post, she also suffered a broken nose.
The motive remains unclear, but police are offering a $3500 reward in the case.
Mayor Bill DeBlasio today pledged $3 million dollars for community organizations to combat hate. Exact details of his plan have yet to be revealed.
“We can’t just do it with policing,” he said. “We need to do it with communities and partners on the ground.”
