Man arrested in Central Park bias attack

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Police say a man has been charged and arrested for his involvement in a Central Park hate-crime assault. 

According to the NYPD, 20-year-old Edward Fall, shot a 36-year-old female jogger with a pellet gun early Monday, August 18th and was part of a group of people who the jogger said made anti-white statements against her around midnight as she exited Central Park at West 60th Street and West Drive.

Police are still looking for four other suspects. They're currently investigating the attack as a hate crime. 

Officials say the suspects, all black and between 15 and 20 years old, laughed at the woman after she was shot and made anti-white statements. Police say they then fled into the park.

The woman was treated at Roosevelt Hospital for a minor laceration and pain and released.
