Police are investigating a second anti-white bias incident in Brooklyn where the attacker called his victim “cracka,” the Daily News has learned.
A 51-year-old white man told cops he was on Nostrand Ave. near Glenwood Road in East Flatbush when a black man ran up and knocked him to the ground about 5:40 p.m. Monday.
“This is for Malcolm X, cracka,” the brute said before storming off.
The victim was not seriously injured but did suffer some “soft tissue damage,” he said.
“I came forward to police because I don’t want this to happen to anybody else,” said the victim, who requested anonymity. “I’m afraid of the guy knowing where I live and having my windows broken in.”
The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating.
Cops are trying to determine if the assailant is the same man who beat Randy Aveille less than two miles away on Sunday.
Aveille, 44, said he and his fiancée got off the Q train at the Church Ave. station in Flatbush when an attacker sucker-punched him.
“Cracka, you don’t belong here,” the assailant said before walking off.
Police released surveillance images of the train attacker on Wednesday.
Anyone with information regarding either attack is urged to call NYPD Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
