Richmond police are investigating an attack on a 46-year-old man early Saturday morning as a possible hate crime, Richmond police Sgt. Bisa French said.The victim, who is white, was walking in the area of Amador Street and McBryde Avenue when three Hispanic males approached him.One of the males reportedly said, “Look at that white piece of shit.”The men then beat up the victim and struck him with a pipe, French said.Police believe the attack may have been a hate crime, in part because the victim was not robbed and there doesn’t seem to be any other motive for the assault, French said.The victim was only able to describe his assailants as Hispanic men in their early to mid-20s wearing black hooded sweatshirts.The victim is expected to recover from his injuries, French said.
