Weekend Robberies to be Investigated as Hate Crimes

Early Saturday morning just after midnight, two 28 year old males were walking to a nightclub in the 2700 block of Throckmorton Street when they were confronted by four unknown Latin male suspects.

Both victims sustained non life threatening injuries. These offenses are documented on case numbers 134186-X and 134193-X.
