A 33-year-old Asian man was slugged in the face in Lower Manhattan on Saturday as his assailant yelled, “dumb f—-g c—k!” according to police sources.
The victim had been driving near Canal Street and Cortlandt Alley shortly after 8 p.m. when he stopped his car to care for his son, who became sick in the vehicle, the source said.
That’s when the unidentified brute got out of his own car, walked up, yelled the slur and punched the window of the other vehicle — along with the victim, sources said.
The attacker then returned to his gray Acura and drove off, according to the sources.
The victim later walked into the Fifth Precinct stationhouse in Chinatown to report the attack.
The incident is being investigated by the NYPC Hate Crimes Task Force.
The assault comes amid a spike in bias attacks against Asian-Americans in the five boroughs and beyond.
