A woman riding a 1 train with her parents was brutally beaten by two females screaming anti-Asian slurs last month. Investigators have obtained surveillance video of the suspects and are hoping the public can help in identifying them.
The assault took place in Manhattan on Sunday, June 26th, at 7:30 p.m., according to the NYPD. Cops say two women boarded the 1 train at 86th Street, "at which time one of the females leaned towards the victim, screaming and shouting profanities. The females proceeded to pull the victim to the floor, punch her in the head while making anti-Asian statements."
The assailants fled at the Cathedral Parkway station, at West 110th Street and Broadway.
The 29-year-old victim was treated for bruising, swelling and pain her to head and torso. She also suffered a concussion.
The NYPD says this video of the suspects, who are now wanted for bias assault, was taken in front of 545 West 111th Street after the beating. The suspects are wearing multi-colored leis; LGBT Pride Parade was the same day as the attack.
