WICHITA — Wichita police are releasing surveillance video of what two Wichita State students are calling a hate crime.
The attack happened Saturday between 3:15 a.m. and 3:18 a.m. at the Kwik Shop at 21st and Oliver.
The video shows two men filling up at the pumps when one of them is confronted by a man on a motorcycle. The video appears to show the men exchanging words. Then, one of the students pushes the man on the motorcycle, who then punches and kicks him multiple times.
The surveillance video does not have sound. We asked an expert to look at the video of the incident.
“You really need to hear what the language is, that is going on, because threats of use of force can include words or actions and that’s what we need to know, in order to tell who’s the aggressor and who may be acting in self defense,” said Attorney Dan Monnat of Monnat & Spurrier Attorneys at Law.
During a news conference earlier this week, Khondoker Usama, who is the student body vice president at WSU, said he and his friend, who is Hispanic, were at the Kwik Shop filling up with gas and getting snacks when a white man on a motorcycle was yelling racial slurs at a black man when all of a sudden he turned on him and his friend.
“He started yelling at my friend, hey brown trash, brown trash go home,” said Usama.
Usama called 911 and was on the phone with dispatchers when the man circled them on his motorcycle yelling “Trump, Trump, Trump.”
His friend, who hasn’t been identified, suffered a cut to the lip.
Police are looking to question the man on the motorcycle. He is described as a white man in his 30s, about six feet tall, and 200 pounds.
Police are also looking for the driver of a white van, who was at the gas station and may have witnessed the incident.
Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at (316) 268-4646.
