Attacker yells anti-gay slurs and slaps her in the eye at NYC straphanger: cops

A confused man shouted an anti-gay slur and threatened to stab a 24-year-old woman in a Chinatown subway station over the weekend, then slapped her in the face, police officers said on Sunday.

The attack happened around 7:45 p.m. Saturday at the Broadway and Canal Street N/Q/R/W station in Manhattan, when the woman was standing in front of the turnstile and looking at her phone, police officers said.

“You don’t belong here!” yelled the man, described as in his 50s. “You have to get out of here!”

The hater punched the victim and then hit her again in the right eye with a closed fist as she tried to pick him up, police said.

“I’m going to stab you,” he fumed while brandishing a sharp object resembling a hairpin, police officers said.

The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force was investigating, a police department spokesman said.
