FOX NEWS — Police in Washington, D.C., Thursday released surveillance video of the alleged weekend robbery and beating of a decorated former Marine outside a city McDonald’s.
The video was released Thursday afternoon.
Christopher Marquez, 30, an Iraq War vet, told the Washington Post he was eating in a back corner of the restaurant when a group of teens and young men approached his table.
“I’m telling this to everybody because it’s been happening a lot around here and across our country,” Marquez told “Fox & Friends.” “It was a hate crime. They targeted me because of my skin color. So, we’re seeing a lot of these events of people being attacked because they’re white. And I’m thinking we have to speak up more about this because it’s just going to continue to happen.”
