An Asian woman on her way to church was attacked by a black man in Midtown Manhattan in broad daylight on Monday – while a couple of security guards from a nearby building did nothing to stop it.
Surveillance camera footage from inside the building where at least two guards were on duty captures the moment a man randomly kicks the woman to the ground before viciously stomping on her head and face at least three times.
Despite the attack being both vocal by the suspect and the victim screaming, nobody came to her aide despite her being kicked in full view of those in the neighboring building.
One of the men appeared to be busy opening up packages while the attack was ongoing.
At one point, a second security guard could be seen closing the front door to the premises where the pair were working, completely ignoring the woman who had just been the victim of a savage assault.
Neither decided to chase after the suspect who was still being hunted by police on Monday night.
The unidentified suspect allegedly hurled anti-Asian statements as he punched and kicked the 65-year-old woman on West 43rd Street near Ninth Avenue just before midday, according to the NYPD.
‘F*** you, you don’t belong here,’ the man is said to have yelled at the woman according to sources as reported by the New York Post.
The woman was taken to NYU Langone Hospital in stable condition having suffered a fractured pelvis.
The suspect was also caught clearly on surveillance camera as he walked away from the scene and appeared to be wearing distinctive blue pants, a maroon scarf and beige cardigan.
The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is now investigating the incident.
