QUEENS — A man was arrested days after calling a 13-year-old girl a "white b---h" and throwing an unknown liquid in her face.

Alexis Cabezas, 34, is suspected of walking up to the girl just after she got off the Q10 bus at Lefferts Boulevard and 101st Avenue at about 3:25 p.m. Tuesday and approached her from behind, police said.

When she turned around, he splashed liquid in her face and called her a "white b---h." The liquid caused the victim's eyes to burn, and she was treated at Jamaica Hospital.

A police spokeswoman said it remains unclear what type of liquid was splashed in the girl's face. 

Cabezas, who also lives in Richmond Hill, was arrested Thursday and charged with second-degree aggravated harassment, which is a hate crime charge, and other charges. He has no prior criminal history, according to police.

He had not been arraigned as of Friday morning.
