The man accused of harassing an Asian man in a coronavirus-related hate crime was arrested on Saturday in Queens, cops said.
Raoul Ramos, 44, was charged with aggravated harassment as a hate crime and issued a desk appearance ticket for Thursday’s hateful attack in Forest Hills, police said.
The 47-year-old victim was walking with his 10-year-old son to a bus stop on 70th Avenue and Queens Boulevard at around 6:50 a.m. when Ramos approached him and started berating him.
“The guy walked past us. That triggered him. He was screaming at us and said, ‘Where the f–k is your mask?!’” the victim, who asked not to be identified for fear of retaliation, told the Post.
“You f–king Chinese,” he shouted to the man, police sources said.
“He kept yelling, and I was afraid he was going to touch my son,” the victim said.
Ramos followed the victim and his 10-year-old son to the packed bus stop, where he suddenly hit him over the head before running away.
