Hate crime at Fremont mini mart

Earlier this month, a man dressed in camouflage walked into M&S Grocery and Deli, called the clerk a terrorist and proceeded to hit him over the head with a can of beer, police say. The judge released him on his own recognizance, and he has since skipped his arraignment. Now there’s a warrant out for his arrest. The clerk, meanwhile, has moved to California after he saw the man two days after the assault a block away from the store. Prosecutors say this is the first case this year of a hate crime involving someone of Middle Eastern decent.
