Richmond, VA — Police are actively looking for the men who beat up and robbed two other men in the city’s popular club district , then posted a video of the assault on Youtube.
The video shows a group of six to seven black men kicking the ass of two white men. The video was posted on Youtube with a comment about this being what happens when white people use the “N” word. I’m assuming they mean “nanocephalous” or maybe even “Narnia” but I’m not sure.
But whatever the “N” word is, the victim states they didn’t use it and never would have and didn’t even see his attackers until they came around the corner and began yelling at him and his friend.
“All I can remember is some guys starting to, like, yell at us and shout at us, and the next thing I know, I was waking up the next morning in the hospital,” said one of the victims, a software developer in his mid-20s.
Det. Flores believes the motive was to promote a website, even though one of the men’s wallet was stolen. But whatever the reason, he says once the suspects are arrested, he expects them to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
“We want to send a message that you can’t just hunt people down for sport, for video, for entertainment without consequences,” said Det. Flores.
If you have any information about the attack, police are asking you to call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by your tip.
