Police are investigating a racially-motivated attack on a man making a bicycle delivery on Leary Ave just south of Market St. The suspects are a group of drunk white males who started yelling racial slurs at the man when he rode by them.
When he turned around, a confrontation heated up and a witness tried to deescalate the situation. The group then threw rocks at both the delivery person and the person trying to break things up. One suspect also tried stomping on the man’s bike, but was too drunk to hurt either of the victims or the bike, according to the police report.
The delivery person told police he did not previously know the suspects and that he believes he was targeted due to his race. No arrests appear to have been made, though witnesses recognized the suspects and gave names to the police.
