A Malaysian restaurant owner in Brooklyn, New York, was attacked with a hammer by a man who was reportedly 'inspired' by Chinese movies where women were mistreated
Arthur was allegedly motivated by the Chinese movies he watched where women were being mistreated by Chinese men
"He (Arthur) had problems with Asian men," a source was quoted as saying by New York Post.
"He talked about how Asian women are being treated by their men," the source added.
Arthur, a construction worker in New York, reportedly emigrated from Estonia as a teenager.
He has since been detained by local police.
The Seaport Buffet restaurant owner has been declared brain dead
While Ng has been declared brain dead according to China Press, one of his employees died from injuries and the other remains in critical condition.
Doctors at the NYU Langone Medical Centre are reportedly in a limbo about Ng's situation and whether they should discontinue his life support as he has no family in New York.
He last registered himself with the Malaysian Embassy in 2001, but the Johorean did not provide a full address.
The New York Malaysian Association is urging any Malaysians who can identify Ng or his family members to contact them at +1 646-0077257.
