Video shows suspect in unprovoked assault on Asian man in NYC

Video shows suspect in unprovoked assault on Asian man in NYC

New surveillance video shows the suspect who allegedly pummeled an Asian man outside a Lower East Side subway station this week. 

The 56-year-old victim was entering the F train station at East Broadway and Rutgers Street around 8:50 p.m. Tuesday when a man suddenly punched him in the face, without saying a word, cops said.

The attacker continued beating the victim even after he fell to the ground, hitting his head, police said. 

Then he fled into the subway station, where he is shown on video released early Thursday hopping a turnstile. 

He is shown wearing a black backwards cap, a red bandanna over his face, a grey sweater and carrying what appears to be a jacket and some other clothing in his arms. 

The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition for a cut on his lip, a black eye, and swelling to his head.
