Coronavirus Fear? Suspected hate crime targeting Asian man caught on camera



Disturbing new video shows what appears to be a racially-motivated crime sparked by fear over the coronavirus.

The video shows a man on a New York City subway train arguing with a fellow passenger who is Asian, then spraying Febreeze air freshener at that passenger.

Much of the incident was recorded on a cellphone by another passenger and posted on social media.

The NYPD is now investigating the case as a possible hate crime.
