    Two elderly Asian women were assaulted during separate attacks on the city’s subway on Tuesday.

    The first victim was a 68-year-old woman, who was punched in the back of the head at around 7 a.m. The attack happened on the northbound A platform at 125th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Harlem, according to WPIX.

    The woman reported the crime later in the day and refused medical attention.

    Later at noon, a 71-year-old woman was struck in the face and body while riding an E train near 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue.

    The New York Post reports that her attacker fled to the street at West 53rd Street and Eighth Avenue.

    No arrests have been made so far.

    The attacks are the latest in a series of violent crimes on the subway in New York City. NextShark previously reported that 61-year-old Noel Quinatana was slashed across the face while riding the train.
