Woman Beaten in Subway Station by Man Yelling Racially Charged Words
A woman was punched and stabbed in a Brooklyn subway station by a man who was shouting racially charged words, family and police say.
The victim, Ann Marie Washington, 57 — was getting off a Q train at the Church Avenue stop in Flatbush when she was randomly targeted by a white man, her family says.
“Black bitch!” the suspect allegedly yelled before setting upon Washington.
She had been on her way home from work Friday night when the incident happened at around 7:30 p.m., cops said.
The suspect fled on a Q train and was still on the loose Sunday.
“If this was a white resident, a new gentrifier to this neighborhood, there would be swarms of cops here,” said local advocate Imani Henry, of Equality for Flatbush. “But when it is a black person who is attacked by a white racist, there isn’t anything.”
