A man was arrested following a video of a 55-year-old Asian woman punching her in the face in New York’s Chinatown on Monday, authorities said.
According to officials, 48-year-old Alexander Wright from Manhattan was charged with a hate crime, assault, and criminal possession of a controlled substance in connection with the “unjustified” attack.
The woman was walking on Bayard Street shortly after 6 pm. According to the police and surveillance video posted on Twitter by New York State Assemblyman Yuh-Line Niou, a man in the opposite direction randomly punched him in the face and caused him to fall to the ground.

The footage shows several people on the street approaching the woman who appears unconscious on the ground as the man walks away.
Police said the woman was taken to the New York-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, where she was stable. The identity of the victim was not immediately disclosed by the authorities.
Wright was arrested a block away from the attack and taken to Bellevue Hospital for psychological evaluation.
Efforts to reach Wright by phone failed Tuesday. It was not clear whether he had a lawyer or not.
The incident was the latest anti-Asian hate crime in the US this year.
Analysis of hate crime data in late April found that the increase in anti-Asian attacks remained consistent.
The study, published by the Center for Hate and Extremism Studies at California State University in San Bernardino, found that when comparing the first quarter of 2021 to the same period of 2020 in 15 major cities, hate crimes increased 169 percent.
A report from the center in March showed that hate crimes increased by about 150 percent in major cities last year.
