Another Bosnian immigrant in St. Louis has been attacked by black youths and the St. Louis police are asking for the FBI’s help in investigating the attack as a hate crime, Fox News is reporting.
An unnamed 26-year-old Bosnian-American woman claims she was attacked by a group of black teens in the Bevo Mill neighborhood in St. Louis, a neighborhood populated largely by Bosnian immigrants. She is the second Bosnian to be attacked in racially-motivated violence in St. Louis in ten days.
Last week, in the aftermath of the grand jury decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Mike Brown, Bosnian immigrant Zemir Begic was attacked and killed by a group of hammer-wielding black teens, according to this Inquisitr report.
As of this post, the attack on Zemir Begic has not been officially deemed a “hate crime,” according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. However, the case of the Bosnian woman attacked on Monday does seem to bear the hallmarks of a hate crime.
According to the woman’s police report, via Fox News, a group of three black teens surrounded her car, not far from where Zemir Begic was murdered.
