Asian people on the Upper East Side can rest easier now that the surly individual accused of tormenting them for more than a week has been caught. Police say Jason Commisso went on a potential hate-crime spree, punching and robbing Asians of indiscriminate ages in elevators of their own buildings before jumping a Greyhound headed to San Antonio when cops put out his photo. Beard shaved and braids cut, Commisso was arrested on the New Jersey Turnpike "without incident" because, after all of that, he was asleep.
