Posted November 07, 2017 04:16:33 A local paper has been busted after a man was arrested and charged with a hate crime.
The Georgia News & Review reported that a man who works at a local newspaper was arrested Wednesday morning on a hate-crime charge.
He is accused of yelling anti-Semitic slurs and threatening people at a gas station in the city of Marietta.
The man is reportedly also accused of taking money from a gas pump and using it to buy weapons.
The paper said he was arrested after someone called police, saying that he was the man who allegedly used racial slurs and threats to intimidate a customer.
The suspect has not yet been charged in connection with the incident.
The newspaper’s news director, Kevin Hargrove, told the news outlet that the newspaper’s front page is the only thing in the entire country that reads like this.
“I’ve never seen anything like this before in my life,” he said.
Hargraves said the suspect has a history of anti-Semitism, but he’s not sure what caused the attack.
He said the police department is investigating.
He also added that the man was taken into custody and released without charge.
According to the police report, the victim was walking down the street when a man approached him and said that he wanted to “go to the gas station.”
The victim told the man that he didn’t have a ticket and that he had to leave the area, which he did.
The victim said he asked the man why he was targeting him, and he said he had no idea what he was talking about.
“The victim was very upset by what happened and was in tears,” Hargreves said.
“He had no recollection of the incident and did not know why he had been targeted.”
The police report says the victim told officers that he saw the suspect at the gas pump on Friday afternoon and that the suspect took $100 from him and left.
The police department said that after they identified the suspect, the suspect was taken to jail.
A Georgia Police Department spokesman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the report shows a “person of interest” in the case, but that it has not been confirmed that the person is the suspect.
“We have not been able to confirm that the victim has any connection to this incident,” said the spokesman, Brian Stenzel.
“Our detectives are working with the suspect to determine if there is any connection.”
The Georgia Department of Public Safety did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Wednesday.
