The NYPD Hate Crime Task Force is investigating an alleged attack that took place last weekend involving a man who yelled an anti-gay slur and then punched a woman so hard that he knocked her over.

Authorities say that the attack occurred at the 120 Circle deli in Brooklyn last Friday at 11:25 a.m. and was caught on security cameras.

Police said that the man approached the woman in the deli and shouted, “Fa***t!” at her.

Then he punched her in the mouth, and she fell to the ground. After he punched her, the man fled the deli and was spotted getting on a nearby train, the New York Daily News reports.

The suspect was wearing a white mask, a white hoodie, dark pants, and plastic bags around his shoes and believe he’s in his late 30s.
