Metropolitan Police are investigating a Saturday morning assault and robbery as a hate crime. Police said a man, 28, from Bethesda, Md., was attacked in the 1700 block of Euclid Street, NW, in Adams Morgan. The victim said he was approached by three black males who kicked and punched him to the ground. According the victim, one of the attackers yelled, “This is for Trayvon,” during the assault. The victim suffered lacerations to the face from the attack. Police said the suspects took the man’s wallet and iPhone. The police report lists the incident as “robbery force violence, hate bias incident.”
Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in self defense on February, 2012, in Sanford, Florida. The verdict in the George Zimmerman trial sparked mixed reactions around the world after a jury of six women acquitted the former neighborhood watch volunteer in the shooting death of the unarmed black teenager.
