The New York City Police Department is searching for a group of six suspects they say punched a woman in the face several times for not wearing a mask.

On December 17, a group of three men and women attacked a 32-year-old woman riding a subway, police said in a statement over the weekend, reported by ABC 7. The group got into a verbal argument with the woman and punched her in the face several times, leaving her with bruises, according to police.

Police said the suspects made “anti-Asian statements relative to the Corona Virus” to the woman, and the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the bias assault incident.
