75-year-old Asian woman injured after being tackled to the ground from behind in unprovoked NYC assault

  • The victim, 75, was tackled to the concrete pavement for no apparent reason.
  • The incident, which was caught on surveillance video, shows the suspect fleeing the scene after shoving the victim.
  • It occurred a day before Korean American Day, when another Korean victim got robbed and attacked in New York City.

Editor’s Note: This story has been corrected to indicate that the incident, which occurred on Jan. 12, did not occur on Korean American Day, the following day.

A 75-year-old Korean woman was rushed to a hospital after sustaining head injuries from a random attack in Queens’ Forest Hills neighborhood on Jan. 12, a day before the 119th Korean American Day.
