EDMONTON - Police are searching for four people involved in an alleged hate crime near Whyte Avenue last August.

Police say the group — which included a very large, muscular man with a shaved head, a chubby, shirtless man with a long Afro hair style, and another man wearing a yellow cast and a lady’s blouse — assaulted two people outside a liquor store near 99th Street and 81st Avenue at about 3 a.m. on Saturday Aug. 11.


Police say the three white males in their 30s approached a young black male outside the store and threatened him with racial slurs, then punched the younger man in the face and threw him to the ground, where the assault continued. Police say a second man was also assaulted after attempting to help his friend.

The group of suspects then fled south along 99th Street.

The Edmonton Police Service Hate Crimes Unit is investigating the attack as a racially-motivated hate crime.
Police say the three suspects are all described as being white men in their 30s.

The first is described as being six feet tall, about 250 pounds and “very muscular.” He had a shaved head and clean-shaved face and wore a white tank top and beige shorts.

The second suspect is described as being 5-foot-9, 170 pounds, with a thin build, crew-cut hair and a goatee. That suspect had a yellow cast on his left hand, and was wearing what police describe as a “black V-neck women’s blouse.”

The third suspect is described as being about 5-foot-10, with a chubby build and long, brown “Afro-style hair.” He was not wearing a shirt.

Police are also looking for a younger woman who was with the group. She is described as being about 5-foot-4 and 130 pounds, with an average build and long hair. She was wearing a white tank top and shorts. The woman is not alleged to have been physically involved in the assault.

Police have released surveillance video taken from inside the store, which shows blurred and grainy images of the suspects.

Police say the video shows the first male suspect walking by himself, followed by the second male suspect, who is wearing the women’s blouse and yellow cast. The third suspect and the female are the last figures shown on the video.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 780-423-4567, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS.) Crime Stoppers tips can also be submitted online at www.tipsubmit.com

Any leads on whether or not these punks are associated with the blood and honour crew?
