NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police asked for the public’s help Saturday in finding a man wanted for yelling anti-Asian slurs at a 44-year-old woman and her three children, spitting at her and kicking her cellphone off a subway train.
Police are calling Tuesday’s incident a hate crime.
Authorities described the suspect as a dark-skinned man who is 50 to 55 years old, about 6 feet (1.8 meters) tall and about 150 pounds (68 kilograms). He was last seen wearing a dark camouflage sweater, dark sweatpants and black sandals. Police said he was wearing a black sock on his left foot and a white sock on his right foot.
