The New York Police Department (NYPD) are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man suspected of assaulting a 77-year-old Asian man outside a Brooklyn market on April 5.
According to police an unknown male “intentionally” pushed the victim to the ground outside a store on Avenue U.
Surveillance footage released by the NYPD shows the suspect grabbing flowers from a shopfront and throwing them as he passed by.
The assault follows an attack on an Asian American woman in Manhattan on March 29 that was believed to be racially motivated. Credit: NYPD Hate Crime Task Force via Storyful
