A hammer-wielding assailant hit a guy in the head at a West Village subway station Tuesday night.
The 29-year-old victim was walking through the mezzanine of the 14th Street station on the 1, 2, and 3 lines near 7th Avenue on March 8 at 9:15 p.m.
He bumped into the perp, who became aggressive and whacked him in the head with the tool, police said.
The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital with cuts to his head but in stable condition.
Cell phone footage from the incident shows the suspect wearing a red varsity jacket with the letter “B” in front, a grey shirt, light-colored jeans, and a black wig. The attacker was also carrying a light-colored bag.
A spokesperson with the police press office said the victim is Asian and NYPD’s hate crimes unit is also investigating the incident.
It’s the second hammer attack in the subway system in nearly as many weeks, after a man allegedly bashed a woman in the head and robbed her at Queens Plaza station in Long Island City, Queens, on Feb. 24, leaving her in critical condition.
Police arrested a man they allege committed that horrible crime three days later.
