The suspect has been identified as Jason Commisso, who police say has more than 30 prior arrests.

Police say at least eight people have been attacked in the last 10 days, many after being followed into the elevator of their apartment buildings.
All of the victims are Asian, and several of them were severely beaten. Four of the victims were women, and they ranged in age from 25 to 64. Injuries included broken noses and other serious facial injuries.
Commisso is described as a 34-year-old Hispanic male, standing 6-foot-1 and weighing 200 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. His last known address was in Queens.
Anyone with information in regards to these incidents is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
