NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man wanted for yelling anti-Asian slurs at a 44-year-old woman and her three children, spitting at her and kicking her cellphone off a subway train. Police are calling Tuesday’s incident a hate crime. Officers say the man fled on West 41st Street after the attack. The woman was taken to a hospital in stable condition for observation. Authorities on Saturday asked anyone with information to call New York City police. The incident occurred on a southbound No. 5 train headed to Times Square.
