NYPD reported that Gonzalez was stabbed in the neck, shoulder, arms and stomach with wounds so deep that his entrails were hanging out of his body. His face and abdomen were also covered in dried blood.

Also last Friday an Asian man was brutally beaten in a subway station after being anonymously accused of attempted assault on a girl on the train.

Video shared online last weekend shows the unidentified man being held and beaten by a group of men at the Fulton Street station in Manhattan.

It was presented online by some advocacy groups as a racist attack because the victim is Vietnamese, at a time when attacks against Asians have skyrocketed.

But the story changed after the person who recorded the viral video described it as a vigilante.

The videographer, who asked to remain anonymous, told the New York Post that he saw the Asian man being held and asked, “Why are you holding that guy?”

The proprietor said he pulled the ‘victim’ onto the platform because he had just attempted to sexually assault a woman on a subway. They waited for police to arrest him, but officers didn’t arrive for nearly 20 minutes, the man told the Post.

In the video of the incident, a person can be heard yelling at the man, ‘You touching girls, you touching girls – little sisters and all, mothers and everything. You dirty, son.’

“I have a daughter,” another man was heard to say before slapping the man. “If the police lock me up, I’ll pay my own bail.”

Police have released photos of the alleged attackers and are asking the public for help in locating them. Police have not received any reports of an alleged assault, police sources confirmed to DailyMail.com on Tuesday.

The repeated acts of violence are driving residents to demand that new mayor Adams, who campaigned on a platform to tackle the crime, take action.

In January, Adams unveiled a comprehensive plan to curb the rise in crime. It included increased foot patrols and the revival of a plainclothes unit called Neighborhood Safety Teams.

He also launched his subway safety initiative in April, sending about 1,000 officers to the city’s busy public transportation system to stamp out crime and vagrancy.

And on Thursday, Adams named Andre Mitchell as his “Tsar for Gun Violence.” In that position, he will co-chair a new anti-violence task force with Deputy Mayor Sheena Wright to end the arms epidemic in the city.

The group will include Adams’ Deputy Mayors, NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell, and School Chancellor David Banks.

“Anyone who impacts or affects the lives of young people will be part of the solution to dealing with gun violence because we can’t continue to believe that you solved the problem because you made an arrest,” Adams said at a news conference. . †

“We want to make sure we give the resources to the people who need it, who are on the ground. We’re going to do more.’
