Two black teenage girls responsible for attacking a woman on a Queens MTA bus were arrested and charged with hate crimes, police say.

The unidentified suspects, 15 and 16, were arrested on Tuesday morning after bonking a 57-year-old on the head on July 9. A third individual was involved in the incident, but it’s unclear whether another arrest will be made soon.

The three teenagers were on the southbound Q52 MTA bus in Woodhaven, Queen earlier this month around 7.00pm when they approached the female passenger and slammed her on the head while making ‘anti-White statements.’

Before the arrests, the NYPD shared a video of the three suspects walking down a street in broad daylight. Two of the suspects had green-colored hair while another had light pink.

The girls were wearing shorts with crop tops and sneakers while holding various items.

The 57-year-old was identified as Jill LeCroix, according to the New York Post.

‘Before they hit me, the girl with the green hair said, “You probably like Trump! Don’t you?”‘ LeCroix told The Post. ‘I said, “I love him.” I didn’t see which one hit me first.’

LeCroix’s daughter added, ‘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.’ 

LeCroix recalled being the only white person on the bus. 

‘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 had a bag from Bath and Body Works, and she took out a scrub and said she was going to beat me with it,’ LeCroix said. ‘It was a tangerine. She said, “You’re going to get what you deserve! All white people are going to get what they deserve.”‘

The 57-year-old needed three stables to close the wound on her head. 

In New York City, felony assault is up from 2021 by 19% with 2,310 more reported incidents, according to NYPD statistics. 

The year-to-date statistics show 14,461 felony assaults have been reported in comparison to 12,151 during the same time last year.

Crime overall in state across various spectrums, including murder, rape, and robbery is up by 36.9% with 18,618 more reported incidents to date than last year.

Grand larceny is the top crime in the city with felony assault following shortly behind. 

Various hate crimes have been reported throughout the city this year.  

A New York man who allegedly shouted racist comments at two Asian American woman and doused them in liquid in a subway station was recently indicted for hate crime earlier this month. 

Derrick Johnson, 40, approached two women inside the Rockefeller Center subway station in Manhattan on May 8, where he doused them in an unknown liquid and pushed one to the ground and spat on her.

After pushing the woman, he allegedly yelled at her: ‘You f**king Chinese. I don’t know why you’re here in America,’ law enforcement sources said, according to the New York Post.   

The woman, 26, experienced ‘significant bruising’ and had ‘substantial pain and swelling’ in her head and jaw, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, 48, said in a statement on July 13. It is unclear if the other woman suffered any physical injuries.

On July 13, he was charged with assault as a hate and aggravated harassment and was ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. He will remain at Bellevue Hospital Prison Ward in Manhattan on a $15,000 bail or a $30,000 bond, according to NYC inmate public records.

Meanwhile, Madeline Barker, who was filmed in a viral video pepper spraying four Asian women in a racially motivated attack in Manhattan last month, was also formally charged with assault on July 13. 

The incident, which transpired in a public plaza in the Meatpacking District, left one victim ‘unable to open her eyes,’ comes amid a rash of anti-Asian violence in the city. 

Barker yelled racial remarks to the women telling them to ‘go back’ to their country. 

She was charged earlier this month with eight counts of assault in the third degree as a hate crime and four counts of aggravated harassment in the second degree, a misdemeanor hate crime, according to the New York District Attorney office.

The suspect, 47-year-old Madeline Barker, was caught on camera hurling racial insults at the victims, such as ‘Go back to where you came from’ and you don’t belong here,’ during the June 10 altercation. The footage subsequently went viral and led to police arresting Barker
