Asian man stabbed, suspected to be loose in Lower Manhattan

Police said an Asian man was stabbed in Lower Manhattan on Thursday night.

Officials said the 36-year-old victim was stabbed in her torso near the Manhattan federal courtyard on Worth Street at around 6:20 pm.

The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital and is expected to recover.

The male suspect fled on foot. Hours later, police said they took the person of interest into custody.

Assemblyman Yuh-line Nieu, whose district covers the area where the razors took place, Said on twitter That, preliminately, the attack does not appear to be a hate crime.

The legalist said that the Asian hate crime task force would assist in the investigation.

The task force was formed last August as a result of an increase in hate crimes against Asians during the COVID-19 epidemic.
