in Poway, a city in San Diego County, four young latino adults or teenagers chased after two black brothers yelling racial slurs potentially committing a hate crime. The latinos chased the two brothers after they left an apartment complex and eventually smashed the black brothers’ car windows with one of them using a metal pipe.
The brothers were able to drive to another location where they called the police emergency line 911. The responding San Diego County sheriff deputies searched the location but were unable to locate the suspects. The investigation is ongoing and the police don’t believe the crime was gang related but was racially motivated.
