This image taken from surveillance video provided by the New York City Police Department shows a person of interest in connection with an assault of an Asian American woman, Monday, March 29, in New York.

Elliot served 17 years in state prison for stabbing his mother to death, the NYPD told CNN.

Following Elliot's arrest, the NYPD tweeted, "Thanks to assistance from the public and excellent investigative work by @NYPDHateCrimes Detectives, the individual wanted for Monday's assault of a 65-year-old Asian female, at 360 West 43rd St, was arrested and charged with Felony Assault as a Hate Crime".

The New York Times reports that the victim in the case is 65-year-old Vilma Kari, a native of the Philippines.

"Mr. Elliot is accused of brutally shoving, kicking, and stomping a 65-year-old mother to the ground after telling her that she didn't belong here", Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. said in a statement.

She was discharged from the hospital on Tuesday after being treated for serious injuries, a hospital spokesperson said.

Residents identified the suspect seen on a video as a local homeless man, according to WABC. "The Asian community has been living with for the last 13 months".

He said it was "absolutely unacceptable" that witnesses did not intervene.

The attack happened late Monday morning outside a luxury apartment building two blocks from Times Square.

The property developer and manager of the building, Brodsky Organization, wrote on Instagram that it was aware of the assault and said staff members who witnessed it were suspended pending an investigation.

In captured surveillance video, he is seen kicking the woman to the ground and stomping on her several times.

"The HPD sent a representative to my place to apologize to me and they told me they were investigating the incident and that the inspector has been suspended", he added. Their union said they called for help immediately.

"Make noise - call out what's happening".

"Go and try and help, immediately call for help". "This is something where we all have to be part of the solution. We can't just stand back and watch a heinous act happening". As the Times notes, "Some Asian-Americans said the attack this week in Manhattan sent a chilling message: Even if assaulted on a busy street in broad daylight, they may be left to fend for themselves".

Dozens of recent violent attacks and murders of Asian Americans, many of them elderly, have been committed by black people, something the media has chosen to either downplay or ignore, not only because the race of the alleged assailants doesn't fit the mainstream-media narrative about white supremacy but perhaps because the attacks are so brutal: Mac Donald describes, for example, how "two 19-year-olds and a 20-year-old walked into a San Francisco laundromat where a 67-year-old man was sitting".

Police Commissioner Dermot Shea called Monday's attack "disgusting".

Shea previously said the department would increase its outreach and patrols in predominantly Asian communities amid the spike of anti-Asian hate crimes.

Hate crimes against Asian-Americans have come under the spotlight after the Atlanta spa shootings, where most of the victims were of Asian descent.

New York Police Department's Hate Crime Task Force has asked anyone with information to contact the department's confidential hotline or submit tips online.
