New York man charged with attempted murder of Chinese immigrant

A New York City man was arrested and charged on Tuesday with attempted murder in what police have classified as a hate crime against a Chinese immigrant, authorities said.
 

The victim, identified by police as 61-year-old Yao Pan Ma, was attacked in the East Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan on April 23. The assault is the latest in a spate of attacks targeting Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders across the nation.
 

A recent report by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University at San Bernardino showed that crimes against Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders jumped by 145 percent in 2020, even as hate crimes overall in the United States fell slightly.
 

In March, a shooting spree at three spas in and around Atlanta left eight people dead, including six Asian women. Police said that they have not ruled out charging the suspect with a hate crime.
 

In the New York incident, surveillance video released by police last week shows Ma being attacked from behind, knocked down and kicked in the head multiple times by a lone man.
 

Police charged Jarrod Powell, 49, of New York with two counts of felony assault, one count of attempted murder. Police classified the attack as a hate crime but offered few other details.
 

It was unclear on Tuesday if Powell had an attorney. No information on bond was available, but police said he remained in custody on Tuesday evening.
