Man Assaulted On Bus For ‘Being White,’ Police Say

A man in New York City punched a stranger in the face for being white, police say.

The NYPD is still looking for a suspect who reportedly attacked a man for no other reason than his skin color on Monday morning in Downtown Brooklyn.

Shortly after boarding a public bus, an unnamed 29-year-old white male was assaulted by another rider. “Another man walked up to him and punched him in the face while making an anti-white comment,” reports Fox 5. “The victim was not seriously injured but suffered swelling and pain.”

The suspect was said to have exited the bus at the intersection of Fulton Street and Bond Street and remains at large. Per video surveillance, the man appears to stand at about 5 feet, 10 inches and weigh roughly 180-200 pounds. He was last seen wearing sunglasses, a black baseball cap, black pants and a black sweatshirt.

Those with information are asked to call NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
