He ordered the state police's Hate Crimes Task Force to offer its assistance to the NYPD.

Police say the incident occurred on a J train at Brooklyn's Kosciuszko Street station. The man then stomped on the woman's face several times while shouting anti-Asian insults at her, police said.

As the assault continued, video appeared to show at least three people inside the lobby of the apartment standing by and watching the incident unfold.

According to video footage of the New York City assault, the 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 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 community", the company stated.

Police said they also are investigating the assault and choking of an Asian man on the city subway, after a Twitter user, @AsianDawn4, published a video of the victim being punched by a man dressed in all black, PIX 11 reported.

"You don't belong here", to the victim, who was later taken to NYU Langone Hospital.

The NYPD Hate Crimes Unit asked for the public's help in identifying the assailant seen in a highly shared TikTok video. NY city police commissioner Dermot Shea said last week that targeting anyone "because of the color of their skin, the religion they worship, their sexual preference or anything else" would not be tolerated.

"You try to make sense of it and you can't", Shea told NY1 in a recent interview.

In the latest incident, the woman was walking in midtown Manhattan when a man came up to her and kicked her to the stomach, knocking her to the ground.

New York Police Department said there have been 33 hate crimes with an Asian victim so far this year, news outlets reported.

Earlier this month, an analysis of police department statistics revealed that the United States experienced a significant hike in anti-Asian hate crimes past year across 16 major cities.
