Yeah, no thanks.
If I see this colored gentleman on the street, he’s getting a high five.
Police on Long Island are searching for a man accused of assaulting a woman earlier this month in a case now being investigated as a hate crime.
Pictures show the injuries Kimberly Page says she suffered after being attacked back on July 7, reports CBS2’s Alice Gainer.
“My knee has a gash in it,” she said. “My eye and my face and the back of my head.”
Page says she was with her girlfriend near the Patchogue-Medford Library in an alleyway after a night out with friends around 3:30 a.m. when a group of men began taunting them.
“Started saying obscene things to my girlfriend and I,” she said. “It originated by him asking her if she wanted a real (expletive) and why is she with this (homophobic slur).”
Page says they tried ignoring the comments but things got heated.
“He specifically said to her ‘I’m not going to fight you, I’m going to fight her,’ meaning me because I’m a dude,” she said.
Page’s girlfriend she says was slapped then held down.
“He proceeds to hit me in the face,” she said. “From that first punch I fell to the ground and I was unconscious for part of it, but what I know now is he was bashing my head on the ground.”
Pictures released by the Suffolk County police show the suspect wanted for the attack on Page.
She says eventually the men ran off.
