Two more Asian victims were recently attacked in separate suspected hate crimes in Manhattan — including a man punched in the head, police said Friday.
An assailant suddenly socked the male victim around 4:20 p.m. May 22 at West 26th Street and Broadway in an unprovoked assault, cops said.
“C—k!” the attacker snarled at his 48-year-old victim, according to authorities.
The attacked man refused medical attention at the scene.
The black suspect, who fled, is shown on surveillance video with long blue braids and wearing a light-colored sleeveless T-shirt and neon yellow pants while carrying a backpack.
In an unrelated incident Thursday, a 49-year-old Asian woman was walking at West 33rd Street and Seventh Avenue in Manhattan around 9 a.m. when a man spat in her hair and used the same racial slur, cops said. The suspect, a black man, then fled, cops said.
The victim walked to the Midtown South station house to report the crime — which along with the previous attack is being investigated as a possible hate assault, police said.
The incidents come amid a recent surge of violence against Asian victims across the city.
