Brooklyn detectives are asking the public's help to identify the suspect

A racist man in Brooklyn is wanted by Brooklyn detectives for attacking three Asian men.

On 2 November 2021 at 830pm, the man walked past three men aged 51, 56 and 57. He then mocked them for speaking Cantonese.

The incident occurred in front of a restaurant at 6418 20th Ave. in Bensonhurst.

One of the Asian men confronted him but was punched in the face by the racist, who displayed a knife and sprayed the three of them with pepper spray.

Video footage shows the suspect being pulled away before fleeing along 20th Avenue.

All three victims were brought to Maimonides Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.

Police described the suspect as a heavy-set, bearded Black man between 25 and 35 years of age, weighing between 220 and 225 pounds, who was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweater, dark-colored pants and black sandals.
