A white woman was allegedly assaulted by three Black suspects while riding an MTA bus in Woodhaven last Saturday, in what police are investigating as a bias attack.

The victim, 57 was riding a Rockaway-bound Q53 bus near Jamaica Avenue and Woodhaven Boulevard on July 9 when she was approached by three unidentified suspects at around 6:50 p.m., according to police.

One of the suspects then struck the woman in the head with an unidentified object causing her to bleed, police said.

Police say the group also hurled anti-white epithets at the woman during the confrontation.

“I hate white people…the way they talk,” one of the suspects allegedly said to the victim, according to the New York Daily News.

The assailants then fled the bus on foot when it stopped at Jamaica Avenue and Woodhaven Boulevard, police said.

The woman was taken to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition, where she was treated for a laceration to her head.

Police say the incident is being investigated by the Hate Crimes Task Force.

It is unclear what sparked the attack.

Police released a video of the three suspects wanted for questioning.

These individuals lives do not matter nor does any individual’s who commits a hate crime against anyone.

Op-ed: Protecting Forest Hills Stadium

Jun. 14, 2024 By Thomas Grech

After more than a decade since its rebirth, it is unfathomable to consider Forest Hills without our venerable 101-year-old Forest Hills Stadium. The iconic venue is an asset to our community in so many ways – from creating jobs, to supporting local organizations, to providing invaluable links to our community’s rich history. Amazingly, a small band of unrealists who fail to understand that communities are constructed on the mutual grace and respect of our neighbors, want to shut down Forest Hills Stadium for good.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
