Police are investigating a possible hate crime in St. Louis after three black males reportedly dragged a 26-year-old white, Bosnian woman from her car before assaulting and attempting to rob her early on Friday, CBS St. Louis reports.
The woman was driving at around 5:30 a.m. when three black males in their late-teens to early-20s walked out in front of her vehicle, the police report states. She first attempted to steer her vehicle around the teens, but she stopped after the men allegedly brandished a gun.
One of the suspects allegedly struck the woman’s windshield with a crowbar before the gang of suspects reportedly dragged her from the car and threw her to the ground. The men then allegedly kicked her and went through her purse, but they didn’t find anything they were looking for.
The three suspects asked the woman if she was Bosnian, leading investigators to probe the case as a potential hate crime, police said.
All of the suspects fled the scene of the crime and remain at large.
