The Washington Times is reporting that a white man was beaten by three black men and robbed in Washington D.C.
According to various outlets, the men who committed the act of violence told the man “this is for Trayvon” before attacking him.
The unidentified man was kicked and robbed of his iPhone and wallet. He suffered minor injuries and refused hospital attention.
There have been no arrests but the police are investigating it as a hate crime.
There is no way to confirm that the men said “This is For Trayvon” until there are arrests made but using the late teen’s name in an act of violence is not right.
