CENTRAL PARK, Manhattan (PIX11) -- The NYPD Hate Crime Task Force is asking for the public's assistance in identifying five suspects wanted in connection with an assault in Central Park earlier this week.

A 36-year-old woman said she was jogging around 60th Street and West Drive on Monday around 12:08 a.m. when she was struck by a pellet in the back of her head while exiting the park.

The victim said she saw three black men and two black women laughing and making anti-white statements toward her. The suspects then fled into the park.

EMS took the victim to Roosevelt Hospital, where she was treated and released for a minor laceration and pain from the pellet.

All five suspects are described as being between 15 and 20 years old and last seen wearing dark clothing.

    You do realize that there is no such thing as reverse racism and racial slurs against white people right? The fact that the NYPD labels this as a hate crime really says a lot about their priorities and the people they serve and protect as they’ve not only stopped and frisked, but murdered young black and latino men and harass and violate innocent black women less than 28 hours each. So, please do yourselves a favor and google white privilege, otherwise don’t make reports like this or bothering commenting on stuff like this again.

      so what you are trying to say is that its ok to do crimes against whites? that thought itself is dumb because how can this nation ever be equal if each race keep doing what it can to bring down the rest? you say that you want to be treated equal but look at how you treat everyone else. race crime is defined as crimes directed to one race….no where did it say that white is not a race….another thing about crimes against races when was the last time that there was a group of white men and women running around beating a black woman? i bet if that happened then you would agree…your definition of equality does not make sense….and by the way before you start saying I am a white racist I am actually Hispanic. I Believe in the true form of equality where there is no crimes against any race just crimes against the innocent. And by the way protests do not mean riots and looting…..

    The only thing white people have to worry about is being shot at with pellet guns, meanwhile black and brown people are mercilessly killed by the police or by some racist white asshole. #whatisjournalisticintegrity #stopwhitepeople2k4ever

    I can’t with these salty crackers and the media constantly defending them while demonizing innocent black children after their deaths as if they deserved to be killed by police for simply existing. This is no different than fifty years ago and the Jim Crow era and you know it. Stay in your lane, white folks.

      Oh, please, salty crackers are forced to do just the opposite in the media. Every time an innocent black child is killed, white media jumps all over how wrong the death is because they will never hear the end of it if they didn’t. White people breath a sigh of relief when it’s black on black crime so they don’t have to hear the “blame whitey” BS all the time.
