The victim, a 24-year-old male who wished to not be identified, told deputies that he was waiting in line to pay for groceries when a group of young men tried to cut in line, according to Houston’s KTRK-TV.
“I looked over and said, ‘There’s a line for a reason,'” the man said.
He told deputies that the group made fun of his hair and the clothes he was wearing before attacking him as he left the store.
“I don’t know what else I could do,” he told KTRK-TV. “The fifth one at the end came out of the store after purchasing goods, and came up to me and kicked me in the face and said, ‘Black Lives Matter, [expletive].'”
There is now a criminal case being conducted by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO).
Anyone who has information on the identity of the suspects is asked to contact HCSO assault investigators at 713-274-9100 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
“I really hope they’re caught before someone else gets hurt,” the victim’s girlfriend told the station. “I hope that the people take this and don’t say, ‘It’s white against black.’ I don’t want this to be the statement. I want it to be, here’s a man who was checking out and stood up for himself and he was targeted for that.'”
