  Last modified on June 26th, 2021

On Thursday, April 15 at about 11:30am, a man approached a 34 year old Asian woman on a Q train at the East 96th Street station and hurled racial slurs at her while aggressively pointing his finger.

A report by Patch states that the woman captured the photos above and sent them to the authorities who released them.

This incident comes as the City continues to deal with an increase in verbal and physical attacks against people of Asian descent.

The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force put a tweet out asking for individuals with tips to contact them at 800-577-TIPS (8477).

Tips about this or any other crime can also be submitted at crimestoppers.nypdonline.org or by messaging them on Twitter @NYPDtips.
