NYPD arrested a 33-year-old man Saturday in connection with the crime and has recommended charges of assault and harassment against him.

The NYPD created an Asian Hate Crime Task Force after an increase in attacks on Asian Americans during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Between March 19, 2020, and September 30, 2021, 10,370 hate incidents against Asian American and Pacific Islander people were reported to Stop Hate AAPI, a center that tracks reports of racism and discrimination against Asian Americans.

The man in the Friday incident was still in custody as of early Sunday afternoon.

GoFundMe has verified a fundraiser page set up to assist the woman with medical expenses from the attack.
