Bottle and racial slur thrown at Black Queens jogger deemed hate crime

Bottle and racial slur thrown at Black Queens jogger deemed hate crime

The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating an incident where a Black woman was struck by a bottle while jogging in Queens. The incident happened around noon on Monday, August 17, at the northeast corner of 53rd Place and Broadway in Woodside.

Police  say 37-year-old Tiffany Johnson was jogging when an unknown female approached, threw a glass bottle at her, shouted a racial slur, then continued to yell at the victim.

“She was so loud and aggressive,” Johnson said Wednesday. “She did call me the N-word, and I mean I’m not an N-word, none of us are, but the reality is that this woman felt that she needed me to be that and I would just say that she needs to look into herself as to why.”

Police say the suspect is a light-skinned woman in her 40s and appears to have a foreign accent. Video surveillance captured footage and police ask that anyone recognizing the assailant to contact NYPD.
