NYC: Building staff suspended for failing to help Asian woman during brutal NYC attack

The building staff that witnessed, but did nothing to help an Asian woman who was the victim of a hate-fueled, broad-daylight beatdown in Midtown have been suspended, the management company announced.

The suspect punched and kicked the 65-year-old victim in front of an apartment building at 360 West 43 Street around 11:40 a.m. Monday, yelling “F–k you, you don’t belong here,” according to cops and police sources. 

Video footage of the assault provided by police shows the suspect kicking the victim to the ground — then stomping her on the head several times as she was down on the sidewalk.

The clip shows several men from the building standing near the door — feet from where the attack unfolded — without lifting a finger to help.

The Brodsky Organization, which manages the building, said in a statement posted to Instagram that it “condemns all forms of discrimination, racism, xenophobia and violence against the Asian-American community.”
