A “SICK BASTARD” randomly pummeled an Asian woman knocking her to the ground, outside a Chinatown restaurant on Monday, police said.
Surveillance video posted on Twitter by Assemblywoman Yuh-Line Niou, whose district covers Chinatown, captured the horrifying daytime assault on Bayard Street, near Mott Street.
The 55-year-old victim was walking by the Kong Sihk Tong café around 6:15 p.m. — when a “sick” man in an orange hoodie and denim jacket without provocation smashed her to the ground.
The woman falls backward onto the pavement, and the attacker begins ranting.
A man then rushes over to check on the victim.
“Are you OK?” he asks — but the woman doesn’t respond or move, according to the footage.
“Can’t believe I actually witnessed an attack on an Asian lady right in front of me at the heart of NYC Chinatown,” Jin Zhen wrote on his Instagram Story.
“When I saw the lady rolled over to the ground and went unconscious I quickly hung up on my food order and start recording the situation for evidence.”
Zhen said he flagged down cops standing outside the 5th Precinct and led them in the direction of the suspect.
He thanked restaurant workers for following the madman after the attack.
Chiu Cheng, a 24-year-old waiter, said the eatery was busy when the woman was assaulted, but that he saw her sitting on the ground and covering her head.
He called on the city to assign more cops to the area amid an uptick in crimes against New Yorkers of Asian descent.
“I feel nervous and scared,” Cheng told The Post.
Not so brave now, the sniveling coward was shaking in his boots as he was led away in hand cuffs.
Where he will no doubt face charges of, “assault and battery”.
