  • The Philippine Consulate General in New York has called on authorities “to do more” following the recent attacks on two elderly Filipinos in Manhattan.
  • A 73-year-old Filipino man was walking on his way to church along 8th Avenue and 40th Street in Manhattan on March 27 when a 44-year-old homeless man identified as Dominic Staton shoved him to the sidewalk.
  • Staton, who reportedly has at least 10 prior arrests, was arrested and charged with assault, attempted robbery and attempted grand larceny.
  • The next day, a 53-year-old Filipino man was beaten unconscious and robbed by another homeless man at a McDonald’s restaurant along 7th Avenue near 34th Street. The attacker has not been identified.
  • The consulate condemned the attacks and once again reminded the city’s Filipino community “to be vigilant at all times and to take the necessary precautions, especially when in public.”
