For the third time this week, an Asian person has been attacked in New York City amid coronavirus fears.
The latest incident occurred in Harlem, where a teen approached a 59-year-old Asian man and kicked him from behind, causing him to fall to the ground, police say. The teen reportedly said, “F***ing Chinese coronavirus,” before telling the victim to “go back to China,” according to an incident report.
Earlier this week, a subway passenger sprayed Fabreze in an Asian man’s face because he got too close to him. In another incident, an Asian woman’s jaw was dislocated when she was attacked by a woman who said, “Where is your corona mask, you Asian bi***?”
