28-year-old Sherlock Arana is accused of uttering anti-Indian slurs before attacking both women.

In the first attack on December 8, Arana allegedly walked up to an 18-year-old woman in the 88th Street station in Ozone Park, began making anti-Indian remarks, then punched her in the face before running away.

The second attack occurred last Thursday, when Arana reportedly offered to swipe a 30-year-old woman into the Jamaica-179th Street station if she agreed to pay. When the woman refused, Arana made an anti-Indian remark and punched her in the head. The blow caused the woman to fall to the ground and hit her head, while Arana fled the scene.
