Homeless Woman Charged in Hammer Attack on Asian Woman in Midtown Manhattan

NEW YORK — A homeless woman has been arrested for attacking an Asian woman with a hammer in midtown Manhattan, police said.

Ebony Jackson, 37, was arrested Wednesday in the May 2 assault in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood, police said in a news release.

Surveillance video of the attack shows a person accosting two women as they walked along West 42nd Street. The video shows the attacker berating the women and clubbing one of them with a hammer.

Police said Jackson attacked the victim after first demanding that the two women remove their masks.

The woman who was hit with a hammer was treated at a hospital for a cut to her head.

The police hate crimes task force was investigating the attack, but Jackson was not initially charged with a hate crime. She was arrested on charges of assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon.

It wasn't clear if Jackson had an attorney who could comment.
