CBS New York: NYPD Investigating Assault Outside Queens Bakery As Possible Anti-Asian Hate Crime
CBS New York - A woman is recovering after being assaulted outside a Queens bakery.
Police are investigating this as possibly the latest in a string of recent hate crimes. . .
Video posted to social media by the victim’s daughter shows a 52-year-old woman being pushed to the ground on Roosevelt Avenue in Flushing, Queens, on Tuesday.
Her daughter says the victim hit her head on a pole and was knocked out, and that she went to the hospital and got five to 10 stitches. . .
Stan Mark, senior attorney for the Asian-American Legal Defense and Education Fund, believes those numbers should be even higher and that many victims do not report the incidents.
“They don’t think anything is going to be done about it, and then second, if they’re limited English proficient,” Mark said. . .
