NYPD arrests man in Asian hate crime case

The Hard Truths of the Latest Anti Asian Attack

New York City police have arrested a suspect in connection with the shocking attack on an elderly Asian woman that took place on Monday in Manhattan's Lower East Side, Newsweek reports.

The 65-year-old woman was walking in midtown Manhattan a few blocks from Times Square on Monday afternoon when a man approached her and kicked her in the stomach, knocking her to the ground, police said.

The New York Post, which first reported on the arrest, said Elliot lives in a homeless shelter near where the attack occurred.

Police identified the suspect as 38-year-old Brandon Elliot.

The recent video also points to the results of another failure of civic responsibility on the part of our criminal justice system and political leadership: Mr. Elliot was on parole for the murder of his own mother when he attacked Ms. Kari, suggesting that he was not as compelling a candidate for reintegration into society as the parole board deemed him to be.

NY city launched plans last week to deploy an all-Asian undercover police team to combat a rise in hate crimes against Asians, which included shooting attacks at Atlanta-area spas this month in which six Asian women were killed. One of them closed the building door as she was on the ground, and the attacker walked away while onlookers watched.

The woman was discharged from the hospital Tuesday after being treated for serious injuries, a hospital spokesperson said.

The attack on Monday was among the latest in a national spike in anti-Asian hate crimes, and happened just weeks after a mass shooting in Atlanta that left eight people dead, six of them women of Asian descent.

The attack occurred Monday around 11:40 a.m. local time, as Kari was walking to church.

The surge in violence has been linked in part to misplaced blame for the coronavirus and former president Donald Trump's use of racially charged terms like "Chinese virus".

He called Monday's attack "disgusting", telling TV station NY1: "I don't know who attacks a 65-year-old woman and leaves her on the street like that".

A 48-year-old man was arrested the next day and charged with menacing.

Police Commissioner Dermot Shea called Monday's attack "disgusting".

NY and other U.S. cities have seen an upsurge in crimes against people of Asian descent since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, with activists attributing the rise to repeated references by ex-president Donald Trump and others to COVID-19 as the "Chinese virus". The NYPD's Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the attack and has asked anyone with information to contact the department.

The Brodsky Organization, which manages the building, said in a statement posted to Instagram that it "condemns all forms of discrimination, racism, xenophobia and violence against the Asian-American community".

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

Stop AAPI Hate, an advocacy group, reported almost 4,000 instances of hate instances against Asian Americans in the USA between March 2020 and February 2021 - more than 10 a day.
