White Power in Koreatown

Incident occurred on February 1: 

An 83-year-old Korean woman was assaulted in Koreatown on Wednesday afternoon in an attack that became the subject of a viral social media post. The assailant was reported to have yelled “white power” before fleeing. The victim suffered a one-inch cut to her left cheek as a result of the fall and had pain in her knee. A witness told officers that the suspect punched the elderly woman in the back of her head, causing her to fall to the ground. Two men chased the alleged assailant. The woman, who seemed “out of it,” repeatedly yelled “power is power” and the N-word.
