15-Year-Old Boy, 52-Year-Old Woman Fall Victims in Separate Anti-Asian Incidents in NYC

A teen boy and a middle-aged woman were reportedly targeted in separate anti-Asian incidents in New York City over the weekend. The cases, which both occurred on Saturday, are now under investigation by the New York Police Department's Hate Crime Task Force, according to the New York Post. The first incident took place at 62-01 99th Street in Flushing and involved a 15-year-old male victim sitting in the area. Around 3 p.m., a group of five teenagers allegedly approached the victim. Police said one of them asked, “What the f*** you looking at, Ching Chong?” The victim got up and asked the group to leave, but they allegedly started punching him in the head instead. The victim reportedly sustained injuries and was taken to Booth Memorial Hospital. Three of his assailants — aged 18, 15 and 14 — were arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment.
