The NYPD is looking for three women in connection with an anti-white bias attack on a bus in Queens last week.
The three black women approached the victim, Jill LeCroix, a 57-year-old grandma of five, as she was boarding a southbound Q52 bus on July 9 near Jamaica Avenue and Woodhaven Boulevard.
The bartender, who was on her way to see her mother at the time, claimed she was “the only white person on the bus.”
The women made anti-white statements before striking the victim in the head with an unknown object, causing bleeding and lacerations.
“The one with the green hair, she was saying she hates white people, the way they talk, hates white skin, the way their skin cracks. Saying she was gangsta.”
“By the time we started passing St. John’s Cemetery on Woodhaven, she started in on me, saying, ‘That’s where I’m going to bury you!’” she said.
The victim was taken to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition, and as a result of the injury, she had three staples placed on her head.
The incident is being looked into by the NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force.
