    New York City police are looking for a man accused of shoving an Asian woman while calling her a “stupid Asian b*tch” near Manhattan’s Herald Square.

    The incident reportedly occurred near 6th Ave. and W. 33rd St. at around 3:15 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2022.

    The suspect approached the victim from behind and shoved her to the ground “without any prior conversation or provocation,” police said. He then escaped in an unknown direction.

    “Stupid Asian b*tch,” the man allegedly said during the attack. “Do you want another one?”

    The victim, 56, sustained a minor injury to her arm, according to reports. She refused medical attention.

    Police released surveillance images of the suspect on Tuesday. They described him as being 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 155 pounds.

    The suspect was also described as having a light complexion, a large build, short dark hair and a full beard. He was wearing a red hoodie with white lettering on the back, camouflage sweatpants and black sneakers.

    Anyone with information about the man and/or the incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). Tips may also be submitted to the NYPD Crime Stoppers website or via Twitter.
