(Did you kill the victim because he was Asian?) I didn't kill anyone.]

Today (15th) around 4:30 am local time, the eunuch found the victim on the street of Chinatown in Manhattan, New York, and followed him to the apartment.

According to the investigation, he followed the victim into the house and wielded a weapon.

A neighbor heard the scream and called the police, and the eunuch was arrested by the police while hiding in the victim's house.

Police charged Nash with murder, but she did not commit a hate crime.

It is known that Nash was arrested four times last year alone, including assaulting an old man in his 60s near a Chinatown subway station in September last year alone.

Protests were held in Chinatown to ensure the safety of Asians.

Local authorities need to take action.

I hope you take action before you lose another life.

Too many people have been sacrificed.]

In Manhattan, New York, crimes against Asian descent have been repeated last week, such as when a diplomat working for the UN mission to the Republic of Korea was assaulted on the way home.
