A Caucasian woman went on a ra‌c‌ist rampage aboard the D line subway in New York this week.

The incident, which reportedly left two passengers inj‌ur‌e‌d, was caught on clips that have gone viral on social media.

Tzi Ma, who originally posted the video Facebook which has since then been deleted, said that the woman boarded the train screaming “for no reason” before assaulting another passenger.

“Hateful racist woman goes on rampage on D line! She came on the train screaming randomly for no reason at the doors opening and closing, then after few stops later, turns to knock straphanger who just walked in of which [sic] only asked to be excused.”

In the videos, the “psycho” woman is seen targeting the passenger with various objects from her bag. She allegedly called her female target a “f**king chink.”

“Psycho lady here then gets keys in hand and whatever weapons and assaults the passenger with everything she has including spit and shouted [sic] f**king chink,” Ma claimed.

While unseen in the video, the woman’s target is heard responding, “I am a chink, what’s up? I’m proud of my heritage. What’s up?”

When a man intervened, the woman turned her attention and called him “Mohammed Atta,” presumably in reference to an Egyptian ringleader of the Sept. 11 attacks.

In response, the man said, “What? B**ch, I’m Dominican. You just tried to call me Muslim?”

Moments later, the woman pulled the man’s phone out of his hand. The latter retaliated with a headlock while other passengers urged him to stop.

“No, we have to get her arr‌e‌ste‌d. We have to detain her. She just spit on me. She just a‌s‌sa‌ult‌e‌d me,” the man said.

Ma said that the woman’s targets sustained cuts from the encounter. She called for help from anyone who knows the woman.

“[I] hope she gets arr‌es‌t‌e‌d and ch‌ar‌g‌ed as I saw cuts on the girl being ‌at‌tac‌k‌ed and the guy who helped det‌ai‌n her. Anyone [who] know [sic] her should get her to seek mental help.”

UPDATE: According to the New York Post, the suspect was identified as Anna Luschinskaya, 40, of the Gravesend neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. According to a criminal complaint from the office of the Brooklyn District Attorney, Luschinskaya as charged with menacing in the second degree, criminal possession of a weapon, attempted assault, menacing, and harassment, all misdemeanors. Luschinskaya may also be linked to Anna Luschinsky, a different stylization of the same last name, who shows up in online searches as a Brooklyn-based attorney.
