A homeless man suspected of a string of hate crimes against white people in Manhattan has been arrested by the New York Police Department and charged with the crimes.

33-year-old Todd Lyons is accused of yelling anti-white slurs after one brutal attack, and police say he may have been involved in many others.

"Get off the street, honky, you ­f**king honky, you don't belong here," he is alleged to have yelled after he punched a 58-year-old man in the face.

A bystander described what happened after the attack.

"He was super-bloody, he was wearing a white shirt, there were all these cops," said Nico Victorino, "and he looked like shocked. It was so scary, like we walk around here all the time. You know, you just feel unsafe."

Lyons is suspected of also hitting a 64-year-old woman in the head with a chair hours before, and of an attack with a brick on a 20-year-old female student the same day.

A vocational counselor for the homeless said that he knew it was Lyons when he saw the surveillance photos of the suspect on the news.

"I thought he was someone who may be going through something, maybe mentally," said Gregory Magloire. "He wasn't focused. He kept dozing off. he wasn't looking at me face-to-face."

Here's a local news video about the arrest:
