The Christmas party took place at Michael J. Quill Bus Depot on Saturday. The victim and his girlfriend were invited to the party by the girlfriend’s mother.

A 38-year-old white man dating a black woman was punched out at a transit workers union Christmas party in Manhattan by a black man who accused him of “taking our women,” the Daily News has learned. 

The woman’s mother, Devenus McKinney, 61, a bus driver, identified the attacker as a fellow bus driver, but said she didn’t want to talk about the assault.

“I really can’t speak on it,” she said. “I don’t really feel like commenting about it — it just happened. I’m a little frustrated.”

The attack happened Saturday night at a hall connected to St. Cyril’s Catholic Church on W. 41st St.

The 38-year-old victim, who does not work for the MTA, and his girlfriend, 39, were invited by her mom to the Transport Workers Union party for MTA employees assigned to the Michael J. Quill Bus Depot.

At some point, police said, the victim headed to the bathroom and was confronted by the angry suspect.

“What if I tell you, you are a piece of s— white man, taking our women,” the suspect said before punching the victim in the face and grabbing his neck, cops said.
