(CNN)The man arrested in the "hate crime assault" on a 65-year-old Asian woman in New York City was out on parole for killing his mother, police told CNN.
The NYPD said Elliot is the man in the photos and videos released Tuesday by the department in their request to identify the individual near the scene Monday.
Police previously said the woman was punched and kicked in midtown Manhattan by an attacker who allegedly made anti-Asian statements toward her.
The brazen attack was captured on video and released by authorities.
Elliot served 17 years in state prison for stabbing his mother to death, the NYPD told CNN.
The NYPD Hate Crimes unit thanked its detectives and the public for assistance in the investigation in a social media post early Wednesday.
Police said the attack happened in front of 360 West 43rd St. , which is the address of an apartment complex owned by the Brodsky Organization.
The company that owns the apartment complex adjacent to where the 65-year-old woman was attacked released a statement Wednesday saying in part they have been working with union representation to investigate the response of two lobby staffers who witnessed the attack.
The video, which seems to be from the vantage point of a camera inside the apartment complex, appears to show onlookers not reacting to the attack as the woman is kicked repeatedly in broad daylight.
"We are extremely distraught by the horrific attack that occurred outside our building, and our hearts go out to the victim," the company said Wednesday.
