Police on Thursday arrested a 40-year-old woman after videos showed her kicking and hitting an Asian-American woman with an umbrella while insulting her with an ethnic slur on the D train in Brooklyn Tuesday morning.

As the Eagle previously reported, the attacker yelled at the Asian woman, who was looking at her phone. She then removed an umbrella and keys from her purse, striking and kicking the victim, according to Huffington Post.

As passengers tried to pull them apart, the perp, identified by police as Anna Luschchinskaya, called the other woman a “f—ing ch—k.”

Police charged Luschchinskaya with felony assault, attempted assault and harassment, Huffington Post reported.
