Another Post-Election Racist Hate Crime in NYC

Surely the internet sewer Buzzfeed is all over this one. Oh wait, this is black-on-Indian crime, so never mind.

A 28-year-old man verbally abused and punched two women in subway stations in Queens, during separate attacks that police are investigating as hate crimes, cops said Friday.

Arana Sherlock is being sought by authorities for the racially-charged attacks that began Dec. 8 inside the 88th St. station in Ozone Park around 9:20 a.m., police said.

Sherlock approached an 18-year-old woman, hurled anti-Indian remarks at her and punched her in the face. He then fled the station, according to officials.

Less than a month later, on Thursday around 12:23 p.m., Sherlock offered to swipe a 30-year-old woman into the Jamaica-179th St. station in exchange for money, cops said.

When the woman declined his offer, Sherlock made an anti-Indian comment and punched her in the back of the head, according to police. The woman was knocked off her feet and struck her head on the ground.

Sherlock again fled the station, and paramedics treated the woman at the scene.

Cops on Thursday released a photo of Arana Sherlock, and are asking the public’s help finding him. He is described as 6-feet-tall and 200 pounds with a skin condition on his face.

So I guess we could say he’s partially white:

    Bwahaha! Not the internet sewer pipe of Fuzzbeed. It is good for the lulz.
    Shouting racial slurs and beating up on random women in public at the subway station is not cool?!
    No shit Sherlock.
