Another vicious attack against an Asia person happened in New York city in Central Park.

Last Saturday, around 1pm, a 38-year-old Asian man was approached by someone who punched him in the face and fled, according to the NYPD.

The injuries were serious enough that the man went to the nearby Mount Sinai Hospital.

According to TMZ, the victim had been enjoying the day with his wife and son when the attack occurred.

The victim told police the attacker first came up to his family and started whispering something in his wife’s ear that was sexual in nature. As his family tried to move away from the uncomfortable situation, the attacker approached the victim.

The victim tried to distance himself, saying, “Hey, let’s practice social distance, you don’t have a mask on…” to which the attacker responded, “You got a mask. That’s an advantage.” The attacker then brought on the he added, “You guys always have the advantage.” Then, the attacker punched the victim.

Attacks on Asian people have been running rampant lately. A woman was viciously attacked around the same time in NYC by a man who is now under arrest or a hate crime.

The Central Park attacker is still on the loose.
