YONKERS, N.Y. (1010 WINS) — A man was sentenced to 17 years in prison on Tuesday for brutally beating a 67-year-old Filipino woman in a March hate crime attack.

Tammel Esco, 42, punched the victim in the back of the head as she entered her apartment building, knocking her to the ground.

He proceeded to punch her over 100 times, stomp on her and spit on her.

He reportedly called her an “Asian b****” during the attack.

The victim was hospitalized with a brain bleed, facial fractures, and bruising and lacerations to the head and face.

Esco pleaded guilty to assault as a hate crime in March.

"Today's agreement secures justice for the brave victim who endured the shocking attack and its aftermath, and for a community impacted by the trauma of this hate-driven violence," said Westchester County District Attorney Miriam Rocah. "I want to assure every community in Westchester County that my office will use every resource at our disposal to fight hate and hold perpetrators accountable."
