Olivia Munn thanks the internet for helping the NYPD to track down and arrest a man who attacked her friend's mom in the street

 Olivia Munn asked the internet for their help in tracking down an assailant who attacked her friend's mom and arm chair sleuths rose to the occasion.

The 40-year-old took to Twitter on Thursday to express her gratitude for those who aided the NYPD in identifying the man, Patrick Mateo, who was arrested and charged with assault and harassment.

Mateo was taken into custody after a video emerged of a suspect violently shoving a 52-year-old Asian woman to the ground on a New York City street.

'This is the guy you guys helped @nypd find and arrest,' Munn penned on Twitter along with a video of the incident. 'This is him attacking my friend’s mom who is a petite 5-foot-3 Chinese woman. F**k this guy,' she added. 'The internet is undefeated. Thank you thank you thank you'  


Patrick Mateo, from Queens, New York, was picked up by the New York Police Department on Thursday and charged with assault and harassment, according to TMZ.   


The NYPD said the 52-year-old woman was outside a bakery on Roosevelt Avenue in the Flushing section of Queens around 2 p.m. Tuesday when the suspect got into a verbal dispute with her and pushed her.

The woman hit her head and was taken to the hospital, police said, and the public was being asked for help in finding the suspect. Munn took to social media to shine even more of a spotlight on the incident and ask for assistance in tracking down the then unidentified man.

'My friend´s mom is a 5´3' 50+ Chinese woman and she was attacked,' Munn wrote adding: 'She left the hospital with 10 stitches in her head. We’re gonna find this guy. Queens, Internet, please... do your s**t.' 

The woman's daughter, Maggie Kayla Cheng, in a post on Facebook, said her mom was pushed 'with such force that she hit her head on the concrete and passed out on the floor.'

Munn has been speaking out about an increase in crimes against Asian Americans across the country during the pandemic. 

Last week, she said in an Instagram post that she's found herself 'at a loss for words at the rise of Anti-Asian hate crimes,' which 'have spiked since Covid and continue to increase.'

'Hate crimes against Asians Americans have become so bad that in just the past week a 91-year-old Asian American was attacked from behind as he walked down the street in Oakland, an 84-year-old Thai American was murdered in San Francisco, a 64-year-old Vietnamese American woman was assaulted in San Jose and a Filipino American man was slashed in the face in Manhattan,' Munn said in the post.
