[Updated] Police searching for MAGA-hat-wearing suspect involved in Union Square assault

The NYPD is looking for a suspect (in the video above wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat) who reportedly shoved a man onto the 4 train tracks at Union Square Friday evening around 8.

According to The Daily Mail, the suspect, a black male, got into a verbal altercation on a 4 train with the victim, who is Hispanic. "Police say the black male made several remarks disparaging the Hispanic man's ethnicity, and the altercation spilled out onto the platform at Union Square." Police say the suspect punched the victim several times before pushing him to the tracks.

Several people waiting on the platform helped the man get off the tracks. The victim was treated for cuts to his head.

The suspect reportedly fled on an L train.

Anyone with information that could help in the investigation is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). You may also submit tips online.

The Post reports that the suspect was arrested on Staten Island.

A week ago, some tourist got mugged by two thugs for his MAGA hat at Union Square. I wonder if they gave to this skell.

There are a LOT of crazy people milling around these days. But since the city is so goddamn overcrowded it's hard to notice them (and the homeless too) until one of them lashes out or someone gets eventually killed. Which is how de Faustio and his tools want it.
