New York City subway hammer attacker Christian Jeffers has been held on $300,000 bail

The attacker who allegedly hit an Asian with a hammer in a hateful attack on a Manhattan subway station was held on $300,000 bail at her arraignment Friday morning.

Prosecutors also revealed that Christian Jeffers, 48, who identifies as a woman, allegedly assaulted the 29-year-old victim on Tuesday “with little to no provocation.”

Jeffers was charged with assault, aggravated harassment and threats – all considered hate crimes – and criminal weapons possession in the camera-captured attack on the 1/2/3 14th Street station.

The suspect is a known “walk-through offender” with 47 prior arrests, according to police and sources.

Jeffers was released from prison back in June after serving nearly six years on a second-degree robbery conviction – and was under supervision after the parole, which was due to expire in September 2024, records show.

A little over a week later, she was arrested for petty theft, police officers said.

Christian Jeffers is transported from Transit District 4 precinct at the Union Square train station on March 9, 2022 in New York City.

Jeffers supposedly launched the hammer attack after colliding with the victim on the platform.

“I didn’t see the hammer. i just saw [her] Reach into a pocket, pull something out. It happened too fast for me to react,” the victim told the Post.
