Man Wanted for Throwing Can of Beans and Hurling Ethnic Slur at Unsuspecting Straphanger

The NYPD is looking for a male suspect for his involvement in a hate crime incident of aggravated harassment which took place last week on the Upper East Side. Police officials have put out a notice in the hopes that someone from the public can help them identify and locate the suspect.


Police say that at about 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 4, when the unidentified man was walking behind a 22-year-old woman as she was entering the station on 63rd and Lexington Avenue, he “threw a can of beans at her and made anti-ethnic remarks.” When prompted for more specifics, an NYPD official told East Side Feed that he yelled “F*cking Muslim” at her.

The NY Daily News adds that the man had jumped the turnstile before throwing the can at her.

Following the toss, the suspect “boarded a train to parts unknown.”

Anyone with relevant information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website or by sending a direct message to @NYPDTips on Twitter. All calls are strictly confidential.
