A racist attacker brutally beat an Asian woman who was walking to her church in Midtown on Monday morning — as a security guard in a nearby building watched and did nothing to help, according to police and footage of the incident.
The unidentified suspect spewed anti-Asian statements as he punched and kicked the 65-year-old woman on West 43rd Street near Ninth Avenue at about 11:40 a.m., according to cops.
“F–k you, you don’t belong here,” the brute yelled at the woman, according to sources.
Video footage of the assault provided by police shows the suspect kicking the victim to the ground — then stomping her in the head several times as she was down on the sidewalk.
Several men from a nearby residential building witnessed the crime, the footage shows, but did not try to help the woman.
One of the men, who was undoing packages, watched the entire incident unfold, the footage shows. Two other witnesses — who appear to be building security — walked over to the door as the attack ended, but did not chase after the suspect.
In fact, one of those men appears to shut the building door as the attacker takes off and the victim lies helplessly, according to the video.
The suspect was still being sought early Tuesday morning.
A doorman at the building where the surveillance video was recorded said on Monday night that he was unaware that the attack had taken place.
The victim, who suffered a fractured pelvis, was taken to NYU Langone Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition, authorities said.
She declined to comment when reached by The Post Monday night.
The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating, police said.
The department has recorded a 1,300 percent increase in hate crimes against Asian Americans since the coronavirus pandemic began.
Last year, the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force recorded 28 anti-Asian attacks compared with two incidents in 2019, according to officials.
“This is absolutely vile,” City Council Speaker Corey Johnson said in a Monday night tweet.
“These attacks against Asian-American New Yorkers must end. Hate has no place here and we must always call it out when we see it.
“My office is reaching out to the precinct and will do anything we can to be of assistance.”
This isn’t the kind of history the United States wanted to set. For the first time in 49 years, according to Olympic historian Bill Mallon, the U.S. failed to medal on the first day of the Summer Olympics. Eleven gold medals were given out Saturday, but an American did not place in the top threeContinue Reading
