Woman Attacks Asian Woman With Hammer in NYC Over a Mask

Woman Attacks Asian Woman With Hammer in NYC Over a Mask

The victim: ‘Take off your f***ing mask,’ which is shocking. Suddenly I felt my head get hit by something.”

Manhattan police have begun a manhunt for a woman who attacked an Asian woman with a hammer in Times Square on Sunday.

The attacker told the Asian woman to remove her mask. From The New York Post:

The attack unfolded around 8:40 p.m. when the black suspect snapped at her 31-year-old victim, “Take off your mask!” in front of 411 W. 42nd St., cops said Monday.

The attacker swung a hammer at the victim, hitting her on the left side of the face, according to police.

Cops recovered the hammer, but the attacker is still in the wind. The incident is being investigated as a hate crime, authorities said.

The injured woman, who has an address listed in California, was treated at NYU Langone Hospital, cops said.

ABC7NY reported Theresa, the victim, said “her physical pain doesn’t compare to her psychological scars.” The outlet described her as “shaken up and traumatized and in total shock.” There’s more:

“She was talking to herself, like talking to a wall, I thought maybe she was drunk or something, so we just wanted to pass through her quickly and when I passed through her, she saw us and said ‘Take off your f***ing mask,’ which is shocking,” Theresa said. “Suddenly I felt my head get hit by something.”

She was rushed to the hospital and was said to be stable. She suffered a gash in her forehead — a deep wound on the left side of her head — and needed seven stitches.

Theresa came to New York in 2019 for her masters [sic] at FIT [Fashion Institute of Technology].

Theresa said she stayed with her parents in Taiwan during COVID. She came to New York in April to look for a job even though her parents worried about the Asian attacks in America.

ABC7NY identified the suspect as 5’9″ and wearing all black. It’s weird how the network did not mention her race. The suspect is a black woman. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt since we have video and can see for ourselves.

But alas it is pathetic the focus on Asian hate crimes has gone down once people realized a lot of the attacks did not have white perpetrators. Yes, white people have attacked Asians, but don’t be stupid.

If you want to concentrate on the race of the attackers then let’s do it. The majority of the violence I have seen involved black attackers.

But because people have become sensitive lately these hate crimes have fallen under the radar. I don’t know about you, but all hate crimes tolerate me no matter the victim or attacker. They’re all awful and should not be tolerated.

No such thing as “Manhattan police.” There is the NYPD, responsible for all five boroughs.

    However, do not try to get somebody who is a member of the NYPD and is stationed in Brooklyn to attempt to respond to something that is happening in Manhattan.

White supremacy is like a cancer. Even the black folks are catching it. /eyeroll.

    While bias is intrinsic, prejudice is progressive. Diversity [dogma], inequity, and exclusion breeds adversity.

      UserP in reply to n.n. | May 4, 2021 at 5:45 pm

      The adversity we have today was not bred by anything. The adversity we have today originated in the minds of very far left thinking indivuals who want to destroy this country. It was taught in the schools, given a platform by far left politicians and put into action by groups and organizations across the country and propagated far and wide by the news media, hollywood elite and people with money power and influence.

. Yes, white people have attacked Asians,

You learn something every day. I had supposed that it must have happened somewhere, at least once, but this is the first time I’ve ever heard of an actual instance.

    Yes! I believe it was called WWII

      Asians attack Asians (Russians, too?) attacking People of White attacking Asians attacking Asians. An ouroboros of dysfunctional convergence. Hopefully, not a Hutu/Tutsi-style progressive condition.

      1. That had nothing to do with their being Asian.

      2. They attacked us. Which had nothing to do with us not being Asian.

    Let me refer you to David Codrea’s favorite case, that of ex-felon Marky-Mark Walhberg, the Hollywood star, who misspent his youth as a coke-powered street thug in Boston; at his zenith attacking two Vietnamese men with a stick, permanently blinding one in one eye, while calling the other one “Vietnam f*g s*t” and knocking him cold. He was sentenced to two years (a felony) but served only 45 days.

    Side note: because of the sentence, he is what is known as a “disabled” (disqualified) person for gun ownership, a status which he has almost surely violated on the sets of his numerous Hollywood shoot-em-up films. Since Wahlberg is a member of the Big Club That You Ain’t In, the BATF turns a blind eye to his potential violations, despite citizen complaints.

I note your headline: “Woman Attacks Asian Woman with Hammer in NYC Over Mask:. I note it is NOT Black Woman Attacks Asian Woman with Hammer in NYC Over Mask”. Why is that?

If the race of the victim is pertinent, so is that of the attacker. This goes as well for the “woman” who attacked a stewardess cabin attendant for failure to pick up her trash in what she deemed a timely manner. Twice. She was subdued and handcuffed by an off duty policeman. She was hauled off to jail upon landing.

She worked a bail deal and is out. Her race wasn’t listed, either, but the pictures clearly showed what wasn’t said in the news story.

Funny how they never mention race when the attacker is black.

Democrats, like all Leftists, regret the repeal of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 which removed Chinese from human status under American law.

All that white supremacy.

“Take off your mask” is such a strange demand I can’t help but wonder if the attacker actually said something more racially charged. The initial attack was from behind, can she even see the mask at that point?

    henrybowman in reply to randian. | May 4, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    Yup. “Take off your mask” coupled with a classic Nordic hammer-attack — why, you’d expect to see a skinhead with a MAGA cap.

    This is why I enjoy living in Arizona and not New York. After her second swing, Thor-etta there would have been well perforated and bleeding out in the gutter. Out here, we still think that it’s better to defeat injustice rather than just keep kicking it down the road.

The suspect is black … imagine my surprise …

Please, LI staff, take the time to thoroughly proofread your posts.

“I don’t know about you, but all hate crimes tolerate me no matter the victim or attacker.”.

“hate crimes tolerate me” makes no sense whatsoever. Perhaps you meant ‘hate crimes infuriate me’, or ‘hate crimes bother me’.

I imagine I’ll get piled on for speaking up, but if you’re not aware of problems, you can’t be expected to deal with them.

This country is going to the dogs..

    And that would be a bad thing only because we are systemically prevented from putting down the rabid and vicious ones.

Only in liberal lala land.

White supremacy does not require a white person to perpetuate it.

Maybe we should step back and reflect on this. What if this hammer wielding woman is the vanguard for opposing Fouchi?

Perhaps the mask totalitarians should view this as a sign of things to come? Granted that striking someone with a hammer is impolite but the effectiveness of the anti mask, anti Karen message is undeniable.
