Hate Crime in Downtown Mountain View
Original post made by Alicia Crank, Castro City, on Feb 23, 2009
On February 21, 2009, at approximately 1:25AM, a hate crime occurred in the 200 block of Castro St. in downtown Mountain View. Four suspects were arrested in connection with this crime.
Just before 1:30AM, four victims left a bar in a group to walk to their car, which was parked in the city-owned lot behind the businesses in the 200 block of Castro St. As they walked towards the car, they spoke in their native language of Hindi. Two female suspects began to harass the group as they walked, making racially charge comments about their native language and ethnicity.
The two female suspects approached the female victim and began punching and slapping her. The victim's husband attempted to intervene by pushing one of the suspects away from his wife. Four to six male suspects appeared and dragged the husband away from his wife and began punching and kicking him.
