Assault, Robbery May Be Hate Crime

Will David, The Journal News (Westchester, NY), Feb. 3

Police were searching for four black teens who assaulted and robbed a 14-year-old white boy of a CD in the northern section of the city two days ago.

“It may be a hate crime,” said police Capt. Patrick McMahon, commander of the Fourth Precinct.


The boy’s parents told police that they would seek medical attention for a bruised eye and pain in his wrists. Prosecuting the attack as a hate crime could increase the penalties.
