A white woman threw a glass bottle at a black jogger in Woodside last month and then shouted a racial slur at her, police said.

The police released video footage of the incident today that shows a white woman hurling a bottle at a 37-year-old black woman while she was running near the northeast corner of 53rd Place and Broadway on Aug. 17 at around midday.

The black woman can be seen jumping in the air to avoid the bottle. She turns her head back toward her blonde-haired attacker but continues to jog on.

The suspect yelled at her and said “get out of here n—-r,” according to the New York Daily News.

Police said the victim did not sustain any injuries and the incident is being investigated as a hate crime by the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force.

The white woman is described as being in her 40’s and is around 5 feet and 5 inches tall.

She has a light complexion with blue eyes, long blonde hair and weighs around 160 pounds. She was last seen wearing dark sunglasses, a black tank-top and white shorts.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
