‘He’s not racist. He’s out there. He’s in Pluto.’ Brooklyn anti-Asian attack suspect is mentally ill, siblings say

Joseph Russo, 28, is accused of pinning an Asian woman to a storefront and yanking her hair on March 22, and of shoving an elderly Asian Man to the ground as he shopped for groceries Monday. The suspect’s brother and sister insisted he’s not a bigot, and said he shouldn’t be charged with a hate crime. “We are very sorry if these people were scared or even got scratched. We apologize for his actions,” said Jason Rosa, Russo’s older brother.
