Asian Woman Attacked in Houston

On June 15, 2023, a 24-year-old Asian woman was walking home from work in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston when she was attacked by a man. The man punched her in the face and called her a racial slur. The woman was treated for her injuries at a local hospital and released.

The attack is being investigated as a hate crime. The suspect is described as a white man in his early 20s, with short brown hair and a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black t-shirt and jeans.

This is not the first hate crime that has happened in Houston in recent months. In April 2023, a 67-year-old Asian man was attacked in the same neighborhood. The man was punched in the face and called a racial slur. He was treated for his injuries at a local hospital and released.

Hate crimes are a serious problem in Houston, and they are happening more frequently. It is important to stand up against hate and to report any incidents to the police. If you see something, say something.

The Houston Police Department is urging anyone with information about these attacks to come forward. They are also asking people to be aware of their surroundings and report any suspicious activity to the police.
