Police are searching for a woman they say attacked a Hispanic victim in a Bronx subway station during a potential hate crime, authorities said.

The culprit carried out the assault on a train in the Pelham Parkway station, on White Plains Road, about 4 a.m. Tuesday, police said.

An argument broke out between the two women, during which the attacker allegedly removed the 54-year-old victim’s contractor helmet and slammed it into her face and head multiple times while making anti-Hispanic statements, police said

“Go back to your country,” the attacker allegedly shouted, in addition to accusing the victim of “taking jobs” from Americans.

Police say this woman made anti-Hispanic statements while attacking a 54-year-old victim on the subway Tuesday morning.

The victim was treated for minor injuries at a local hospital.

Police said the alleged attacker is believed to have burgundy-colored hair and wore all black during the crime, along with a camouflage scarf.

Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-577-TIPS.
