Two Asian women were attacked by a woman wielding a hammer on Sunday (May 2) in New Yew York City, according to new surveillance video released by the New York City Police Department.
The suspected attacker approached the women on the sidewalk and demanded they remove their masks, according to police. When they refused, she struck them with a hammer, causing one of the women to suffer a laceration.
One of the Asian women, 29, swung a wine bottle she was carrying at the attacker. At one point, the attacker dropped her hammer and the 31-year-old Asian woman picked up the hammer.
