New photos of the man who allegedly kicked a woman wearing a hijab on a Brooklyn street were released by the NYPD Sunday night.

The man, who is seen leaving a Brooklyn subway station, is accused of walking up to a Muslim woman on Avenue H, near Rugby Road, in Ditmas Park on March 16, trying to trip her and then kicking her in the right shin.

After kicking her, the man fled down Avenue H.

The woman said she is certain she was targeted because of her Muslim faith.

“I don’t see any other reason except just a hate crime because of my attire, what I was wearing,” Umber Nisar said at a news conference days after the incident.

No arrests have been made and the investigation was ongoing. The NYPD Hate Crime Task Force was investigating.
