to Raise Awareness and Find Perpetrator

New York, NY—Today, Council Member Margaret Chin flyered for the 5th Precinct to raise awareness about a suspect wanted for a series of racially-targeted assaults against Asian women.

“As an Asian woman, I am personally disgusted by these racially-targeted attacks,” said Council Member Margaret Chin. “These are clearly acts of hate and ignorance. I urge anyone who knows anything that may help us catch this individual to report a tip. We must catch him before he hurts anyone else.’

“I hope that when this individual is caught, these acts will be persecuted to the full extent of the law as the hate crimes these clearly are.”

In the last four days, the suspect has attached four victims, all Asian women. Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
