A racist brute hurled anti-Asian threats at a male nurse in Manhattan, grabbing his wrist and trying to physically remove him from a subway car, police and sources said.
“Hey Chinaman, you’re infected,” the hater spewed at the victim, according to cops. “You need to move to a different car. I’m going to beat this Chinese n—-r up.”
The hater was on the northbound 4 train when he approached the stranger, cops said. The victim was identified by police sources as a nurse of Filipino descent.
During the melee, the man grabbed the victim by the wrist and tried to eject him from the subway car, cops said.
The hate-monger was described as Hispanic, standing about 5-foot-8 and weighing about 180 lbs. Photos and videos released by cops show him wearing an LA Lakers cap and a black, waist-length jacket.
The case is being investigated by the Hate Crimes Task Force, cops said.
