A video has gone viral showing an Asian man being held and beaten on a New York City subway platform by three Black men–one who held the victim and two who took turns slapping and punching the victim. The video is the latest example of criminals attacking and sometimes killing subway patrons at will.
The video shows the Asian man being held tightly from behind by a Black man as first a Black man bitch slaps him and then a second Black man rains down punches on the Asian man’s head. No one appears to try to intervene while voices off camera can be heard laughing. The attack took place at a pillar labeled Fulton Street (lower Manhattan) that has an emergency call box attached to it.
The video was posted to Twitter Sunday by Asian Crime Report, “A group of men attack a man in a New York subway. The victim looks to be Asian. Asking for the public’s help in identifying the attackers and having them arrested. One man is holding the defenseless man as others punch him. New York subways are not safe. Video sent by follower.”

NYPD Transit replied asking for more info which the poster said they were did not have, “Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
