The worst kind of tourism.


Not for nothing Mr. Attacker, bitch slapping people in public isn't the most heterosexual act I can think of.

Whoa. I'm pretty sure this is the guy who has been randomly verbally assaulting everyone he sees. He has twice now spewed out nasty comments to my boyfriend calling him a terrorist (he's Indian). Once my boyfriend finally said something and the guy got up in his face ready to fight so my boyfriend just walked away. About two weeks ago on my way to work called me a white n***** while walking by. I've also seen him say horrible things to the workers at the plant shop outside.

It struck me as so bizarre because he seemed well dressed but assumed he must be crazy to just verbally attack people like that out of nowhere. He must live around here because I keep passing him these days.

The sketch kind of looks like him but maybe a little younger. The guy I'm talking about is probably almost 50. Not sure my vague information will help but I'll definitely call the police next time I see this guy. Not sure why I didn't do it sooner.

curious that someone couldn't have gotten plates on the vehicle.

@Anonymous, you might want to contact the police even before you see the guy again. I'm pals with the victim and he says this:
If anyone saw the crime and/or has any information, or if anyone thinks they know someone that fits this description who has a similar vehicle that is a known homophobe that could be the person, please let me know! Or contact the Hate Crimes Task Force of the NYPD (info on the flyer)
