On Wednesday morning, a man approached a 42-year-old stranger standing on the corner of Berry Street and Division Avenue and allegedly punched him in the back of the head while yelling anti-white statements, the NYPD reported. The victim of the alleged assault fell to the ground and later refused medical attention.
The suspect (pictured) ran to the Roberto Clemente Housing Development, according to police, who describe him as Hispanic, 5-foot-11 and approximately 190 pounds.
