A Brooklyn man was busted Wednesday for attacking Asian people in two separate attacks in New York, police said.
Joseph Russo, 27, was hit with hate crime charges for both incidents — allegedly shoving an elderly man to the ground on Monday morning and assaulting a 32-year-old woman last month, according to the NYPD.
In the most recent incident, Russo is accused of randomly pushing a 77-year-old man while he looked at vegetables for sale in front of the J&R NY Supermarket in Sheepshead Bay.
Surveillance footage showed the maniac snatching a bouquet of flowers from an outdoor store display and chucking it across the sidewalk before setting his sight on his victim.
Two weeks earlier, on March 22, the hateful creep yanked the hair of a woman walking on Kings Highway in Homecrest — in another unprovoked daytime attack.
Video released by cops allegedly showed Russo brazenly dragging his victim by the hair for a few feet before letting go.
He then struck a wall with his hand and walked away.
The victims refused medical attention in both of the attacks. The woman suffered pain to her head and neck and the man was left with bruises on his left arm.
Russo is facing charges of assault as a hate crime and harassment as a hate crime in each of the incidents, cops said.
