NYC: Stranger Demands ‘Take Off Your Mask’ Before Hammer Attack on 2 Asian Women in NYC

Two Asian women were attacked by a stranger on the streets of New York City on Sunday and police say they’re investigating the incident as a possible hate crime.

Surveillance video of the incident shows a woman walking up to the victims on West 42nd Street near Ninth Avenue and then lunging at them. Police say the suspect told the victims to “take off your mask” before and attempted to hit them with what police say was a hammer.

One of the victims, a 31-year-old woman, had to be taken to the hospital after suffering laceration to her head, according to police.
