Teens Beat 51-Year-Old Asian Woman For Not Wearing Mask

Three 15-year-old girls have been charged with hate crimes for their attack on an Asian woman inside a city bus.

Bronx, NY – A 51-year-old Asian woman was attacked and beaten with an umbrella by a group of teenage girls on a city bus.

The incident occurred at about 3 p.m. on March 28 on a Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) bus near the intersection of West 166th Street and Ogden Avenue in the Highbridge section of the Bronx, WNBC reported.

The woman told police she was approached by four teenage girls who made anti-Asian statements and then attacked her.

New York Police Department (NYPD) Lieutenant Thomas Antonetti told CNN that the victim told police the girls said she caused coronavirus and asked why she wasn’t wearing a mask.

Police said one of the attackers hit the woman with an umbrella before all four suspects fled the bus.

NYPD said in a statement the victim was transported to the hospital and required stiches for a cut on her head, WNBC reported.

Shortly after the assault, officers arrested three 15-year-old girls near the scene, CNN reported.

NYPD said they had all been charged with hate crime assaults, menacing, and harassment for the attack on the bus.

Lt. Antonetti said police were still searching for the fourth suspect, who allegedly was the teen who struck the victim with an umbrella, according to CNN.

NYPD has already been investigating a series of attacks on Asian-American residents of the Big Apple.

The New York Daily News reported that an “unhinged hypochondriac” punched a 23-year-old Asian woman in the face at about 10:30 a.m. on March 10 on 34th Street near Fifth Avenue in Midtown.

The victim told police a black woman in her 20s ambushed her as she walked down the sidewalk.

“Where’s your coronavirus mask, you Asian b---h!” the woman screamed and then slugged the Asian woman in the face.

The suspect fled before police arrive, and her victim was transported to Bellevue Hospital with an injury to her jaw, the New York Daily News reported.

Not even 10 hours later, a 59-year-old Asian man was ambushed in East Harlem, the New York Post reported.

The victim told police he was walking on Madison Avenue near E. 103rd Street at about 9 p.m. when a black teenage boy kicked him in the back, taking him to the ground.

“F--king Chinese coronavirus,” the kid yelled at his victim, according to witnesses.

Then he told the injured Asian man to go back to his country and fled, the New York Post reported.

Witnesses said the suspect was about five-feet-eight-inches tall and weighed about 160 pounds.

Both attacks were being investigated as hate crimes, the New York Daily News reported.

Another Asian man was assaulted with what looked like air freshener on a subway train in Brooklyn on March 4.

The bizarre incident was captured on video and showed a black man spraying air freshener repeatedly at the Asian man while he screamed at his victim to get away from him.

New York Governor Mario Cuomo has said that the New York State Police Hate Crimes Task Force would assist the New York Police Department (NYPD) with the investigations, the New York Daily News reported.

There is a problem with some facts in this article. Mario Cuomo was the Governor of NYS when I was a teenager. I'm quite a bit older now. Andrew Cuomo is the current Governor of NYS.

Why are all of the perpetrators of the assaults black?

It's what they do. You can take them out of the hood but you can't take the hood out of them.

It’s what they do. Usually to each but will take every opportunity to attack others for profit or just for fun. I started to say like wild animals but that would be unfair to the animals. Of course there are good and bad in all races but we’ve allowed this behavior to become the norm. Time for some harsh changes. No apologies here.

If there are “good and bad in every race” why is your first sentence “it’s what they (black people) do? You people are group of bigots, cyber klansmen spreading inflammatory rhetoric in the hopes of inciting racial violence. Be forewarned... We are not our grand parents... We fight back

The LE community wonders why they are viewed as racist, murderous PIGS that live to violate the civil rights of black folks.

poor upbringing? failure of parents to discipline their kids when they were younger? a cultural acceptance that supports this type of behavior? their moms didn't smack them when they misbehaved, so they they think their actions don't have consequences? or maybe they just never had a good role model growing up.....

oh and @Quasar704 , your story isn't out of NYC, it's from Hilton NY, which is outside of Rochester about 5 1/2 hours from NYC. Remember, facts matter, even if you don't like them. Nice try in bringing a barely applicable situation and tying it to the main story. But those 4 should be charged with hate crimes too.

I hope they find the girl that did this! Punish all four to the max! The girls weren’t apparently wearing masks either in the picture so why attack an innocent person on a bus? Dumbass kids, poor upbringing, no social skills, no respect, no responsibility, not a care in the world UNLESS it happens to them and the world falls apart and it’s all about race and equality which is bullshit! Make all four pay, however it NYC I know this will probably never be done!

And of course MSM will say it's Trump's fault versus the brain dead morons who actually committed the crime.

I could’ve swore I just read an article about 4 white teens doing this very same thing a few days ago, why wasn’t this mentioned with the other hate crimes committed by black teens? No, there’s no agenda based reporting going on here🙄
