A 61-year-old Asian man is in critical condition after an assault in New York.
The man was collecting cans in East Harlem on Friday when an unidentified person snuck up behind him and shoved him to the ground.
CCTV footage shows the attacker repeatedly kicking at and stomping on the victim's head.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the latest attack was "outrageous'' and vowed to take action against the assailant, who remains at large.
"Make no mistake, we will find the perpetrator and they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."
The victim is in a stable condition in hospital and no arrests have been made as of yet.
It's the latest in a spate of anti-Asian hate crimes thought to span from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Recent attacks include a series of shootings in Atlanta which killed eight people, six of whom were Asian women, and the brutal assault of an elderly Asian woman in Manhattan.
Preliminary data from the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California University shows hate crimes targeting those of Asian descent increased in more than a dozen cities across the US in 2020.
The most recent attack comes as the Senate approved legislation to ramp up law enforcement to better protect Asian Americans from hate crimes,
The bill next heads to the House, where it is expected to gain approval.
