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.
