New York Daily News: QUEENS, By Elizabeth Keogh – Two teenage girls who allegedly bashed a white woman in the head while snarling that they “hate white people” were slapped with hate-crime charges on Tuesday, police said.
The girls, ages 15 and 16, along with another girl who is still being sought, confronted the 57-year-old woman on the Q52 bus in Woodhaven on July 9 and started an argument, police said.
The dispute turned violent when the girls whacked the woman in the head with a blunt object, cops said.
“I hate white people … the way they talk,” the victim recalled her attackers saying, police sources said.
The teens hopped off the bus at Woodhaven Blvd. and Jamaica Ave., leaving the woman bleeding from the head, police said.
She was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where she received three staples to her head wound.
A Crime Stoppers tip led police to two of the girls. They were arrested Tuesday and charged with assault as a hate crime and aggravated harassment as a hate crime, cops said.
Due to their age, police did not release their names.
Detectives are still working to track down the third person involved.
