(CNN)An assault that left a 61-year-old Asian man in critical but stable condition Friday night is being investigated by New York police as a possible hate crime.

The attack comes amid a surge in hate crimes against Asian Americans that prompted the NYPD to deploy undercover Asian officers on the streets in an attempt to stem the violence.

A survey by the Pew Research Group this week found that 32% of Asian adults fear someone might threaten or physically attack them -- and 81% said violence against them is rising.

A report by Stop AAPI Hate cited nearly 3,800 "hate incidents" against Asian Americans from March to February, ranging from verbal harassment to assaults to workplace discrimination.
