An Asian woman was ordered to take off her mask – and then hit in the head with a hammer – by an unknown woman in Times Square on Sunday, one of two suspects in hate crimes in Manhattan over the weekend.
The attack unfolded around 8:40 p.m., when the black suspect snapped his 31-year-old victim “Take off your mask!” In front of 411 W. 42nd St., cops said Monday.
The assailant swung a hammer at the victim, hitting her on the left side of the face, according to police.

The injured woman, whose address is in California, was treated at NYU Langone Hospital, cops said.
