An Asian American woman was brutally attacked while walking in the middle of the day on a New York street. The 65-year-old was approached by an unidentified man who brutally kicked the woman until she fell to the ground at 360 West 43rd Street just before midday on Monday.
The incident — which comes at a time when New York City and the nation has seen an increase in reports of attacks against Asian people — was captured on surveillance video and released by the NYPD, who also released photos of an unidentified male.
Staff inside the building did nothing to intervene or assist the woman. A man inside the building appeared to approach and close the door on the unfolding scene.
