The NYPD Hate Crime Task Force has appealed for information after two Asian women were attacked with a hammer in Manhattan on May 2.
Video from the scene released by the NYPD shows a Black female attacking the two women.
The NYPD said the suspect demanded the victims “remove their masks.”
She then “struck the 31-year-old female in the head with a hammer causing a laceration,” police said.
The video shows the victims fighting back, causing the suspect to drop the hammer.
