Vilma Kari attacked in NYC hate crimePolice on Wednesday said a man suspected of brutally assaulting an Asian American woman in broad daylight has been arrested after surveillance video of the attack drew widespread condemnation.

New York Police Department said officers arrested Brandon Elliot, 38, of New York City, who faces charges of assault as a hate crime, attempted assault as a hate crime, assault and attempted assault.

Elliot was convicted of stabbing his mother to death in the Bronx in 2002, when he was 19, online court records show. He was released from prison in 2019 and is on lifetime parole.

The attack occurred before noon Monday outside a luxury apartment building in Midtown Manhattan. The suspect hurled anti-Asian sentiments and assaulted the 65-year-old woman, police said.

Surveillance video from inside the building captured images of the assault showing a man kicking and stomping the woman repeatedly. In the video, staff inside the building do not immediately appear to intervene, though a union representative said they called for help.
